The Network for Public Education Action is proud to announce its endorsement of Mark Pocan for Congress, representing the 2nd Congressional District of Wisconsin.
NPE Action Executive Director, Carol Burris, had the following to say, “Mark Pocan is a true friend of public education. He is a staunch opponent of vouchers and critic of the lack of accountability and corruption in the charter sector. During this year’s budget hearings, he pressed Betsy DeVos on how she would ensure accountability in the charter sector. In response to her appointment, he began the House Public Education Caucus.”
Mark Pocan understands that public education is the pillar of our democracy. He wants to “modernize our classrooms, reduce class sizes, enhance special education programs, provide students with access to affordable higher education opportunities, and ensure America has the best-trained and most qualified teachers.”
He also seeks to make Pre-K education more accessible for all children. He introduced the Student Loan Refinance Bill to help college graduates pay off their debt.
For all of these reasons and more, we give Mark Pocan our strongest endorsement.
