EDUCATION FOR ALL

Megan has spent most of her adult life being a champion for our children and believes in the Ferguson Commission’s Call to Action that we must place our youth at the centerof our decision making. Through her work at Lemay Child and Family Center and ChildCare Aware of Missouri she saw first hand the difference that having access to high-quality early childhood education can make in the difference of our children.  In fact, 80% of brain development occurs before age three and every dollar that is invested in early childhood education results in $8 of future savings. As a daughter of two public school teachers and a product of public schools, Megan understands the need to protect our public school system from privatization. While Charter Schools held promise when they were initially proposed, in the two decades that they have been operational in Missouri, very few have lived up to that promise by outpreforming the Public School District.

Megan holds a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from St. Louis University, and is in the process of completing her Ph.D in Education Policy. Megan is committed to:

Supporting our Public Schools

  • Increasing the funding formula for public schools to ensure all schools, regardless of the zipcode in which they are located, have the resources they need to educate our children
  • Supporting a moratorium on the opening of new Charter Schools, closing Charter Schools that continually underperform the public school district, and replicating the handful of charter schools that are outperforming the public school district in partnership with the public school district
  • Holding Charter Schools to the same standards as public school districts
  • Expanding Special School District to St. Louis City
  • Allowing school districts to be “held harmless” when allocating tax breaks to big corporations and developers to ensure that our schools have the financial resources they need to educate our children
