Press Release: VEA ENDORSES FAVOLA CANDIDACY: LAUDS “COMMITMENT TO CHILDREN”

 Arlington, VA – The Virginia Education Association (VEA) Fund for Children and Public Education endorsed state Senator Barbara Favola (D – Arlington) for her upcoming election in the 31st District. The VEA cited Favola’s “commitment to public education and children” as a reason for their support. The VEA issued the endorsement after local affiliates recommended Sen. Favola.

 

Kimberly Adams, Fairfax Education Association: “Senator Favola has demonstrated her commitment to Virginia’s schools by working to protect children in public schools, limit class size, and provide support for early childhood programs. I strongly support her reelection campaign. ”

 

Senator Favola responded to the support: “Funding education is the best investment the Commonwealth can make. We have an obligation to provide affordable, high quality and accessible educational opportunities to all Virginians. I am grateful for the endorsement of the VEA and will continue to fight for Virginia’s future by working to improve its education system.”

 

This year, Senator Favola patroned several education-related bills: limiting the use of seclusion and restraint in public schools, addressing sexual assault on college campuses, and studying the importance of early childhood education.
