Representative Ocasio-Cortez believes that quality education should be accessible to all people, regardless of socioeconomic status.
For this reason, Representative Ocasio-Cortez supports the Student Debt Cancellation Act of 2019, which would forgive outstanding federal and private student loans of all previous and current students in our education system. By doing so, Representative Ocasio-Cortez and her colleagues plan to liberate generations of Americans trapped in student loan debt and holding back from participating in the greater US economy.
Representative Ocasio-Cortez also believes that education can empower our community to create sustainable futures. That is why she supports HR 3457, which would amend the Higher Education Act of 1965 to ensure college for all.
