EDUCATION

Born and raised in the Berkeley school system, I know how important quality education is for all children in Berkeley.

As an alum of Berkeley schools, from kindergarten through Berkeley High School, I have first hand experience in the importance of our schools. Furthermore, as a two-time UC graduate, I strongly believe in equal access to education and in the ideals of the public university system.

Ben's Plan

Strive to make universal preschool available for every child in Berkeley.

Work with state leaders to advocate for keeping university and community college tuition from rising.

Collaborate with BUSD to address classroom facilities needs.

Develop and implement strategies to address the shortage of affordable housing for teachers and school administrators.
