Education

 

Beatty on Education

As a former college administrator, I wholeheartedly support programs that ensure access to high-quality education, from childhood to adulthood. Our nation’s elementary, secondary, and higher education institutions provide the next generation with the much-needed skills and opportunities to compete in the 21st century economy. Making a better system for them also means looking for avenues to address the racial and gender disparities in our education system from pre-K through college.

Highlights of Beatty Work on Education

  • Author of the 21st Century STEM for Girls and Underrepresented Minorities Act to provide science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) school programs for girls and other groups underrepresented in STEM fields.
  • Leads the effort in Congress to provide funding for the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Excellence in Research Program within the National Science Foundation (NSF).
  • Secured tens of millions of dollars in funding for Head Start programs in the Columbus area.
