Having grown up poor, Ruben knows firsthand the power of education to change lives. In Congress, he works to provide all kids with the same transformative educational opportunities that made it possible for him to achieve the American Dream.
Ruben is a leader in working to address the teacher shortage crisis; in 2022, he introduced the Teachers LEAD Act to support teachers and improve retention. Arizona has the highest teacher turnover rate in the country, and Ruben knows that in order to invest in our students, we have to invest in our educators.
When it comes to expanding access to education from early childhood all the way through college, Ruben has been a tireless advocate, fighting for universal full-day Kindergarten, expanded Child Care Development Block Grant funding, increased resources to public schools, and affordable higher education for all students, including Dreamers.
For Ruben, this fight is personal. With a son in elementary school and a daughter on the way, Ruben wants his own children to grow up with strong public schools, career and technical training options, and affordable higher education—and in the Senate, he will push for every child’s right to do the same.
