Education

In Vermont, schools are at the core of what brings our communities together. Vermonters understand the importance of providing our children with a quality education. They understand that a child's education begins well before their first day of school, and will continue long after graduation day.

Senator Leahy has long been a champion of supporting education in Vermont and on the national stage. Senator Leahy fought to secure federal grants to support pre-kindergarten programs at public schools, he has been an advocate for special education programs, and he firmly believes no student should be denied the opportunities of a college education because of a family’s financial resources.  

Senator Leahy also regularly holds online chats with classrooms around Vermont to discuss current events, the government and his passion for Vermont.
