✔️ Invested $83 million in pre-K

✔️ Begun the transition away from PARCC

✔️ Expanded college affordability for community college students

✔️ Supported "Computer Science for All" and STEM career opportunities
✔️ Created States for Gun Safety, a multi-state coalition to tackle the epidemic of gun violence
