As the daughter, granddaughter, and great granddaughter of educators, Jenn understands that a high quality public education for all children is the cornerstone of a thriving economy and democracy. That’s why the Virginia Constitution promises a free, high-quality public education for all children. But, Virginia has not lived up to that promise.
As a legislator, Jenn has led the fight to fully fund Virginia public schools and address inequities in the education system. A recipient of numerous Virginia Education Association Legislative Champion Awards, Jenn has been a leader in fighting for teacher pay raises and to provide more support-personnel—social workers, counselors, and nurses—in schools so that students get the help and guidance they need and teachers are free to do what they do best: teach.
As Governor, Jenn will prioritize a high-quality public education for everyone, creating a world-class education system from early childhood to career.
