Education is the most important predictor of upward mobility, and yet increasingly it is out of reach. College costs a fortune and pre-K is often not an option.

Tamer supports:

  • Universal pre-K education throughout the state

  • The Inclusive Curriculum Bill, ensuring that the contributions and travails of LGBTQ+ Americans and Illinoisans are taught in schools

  • Increasing civics education in Illinois school rooms

  • Increasing state funding for schools in accordance with the Illinois Constitution ("The State has the primary responsibility for financing the system of public education.")

  • Increasing the minimum salary for teachers and allowing for locality pay variance

  • An elected school board for Chicago
