Higher education and job training
Dean believes every Minnesotan should be able to access an affordable two- or four-year college degree, enroll in an apprenticeship program, or earn a job-training certificate that prepares them for jobs of the future. And while he supports targeted relief for federal student debt holders with the greatest need—including those pursuing in-demand professions, such as teaching, nursing, and law enforcement—Dean believes we must treat the underlying problem of college affordability rather than engage in short-term actions to treat the symptoms.
As Vice Chair of the Problem Solvers Caucus, Dean has supported bipartisan solutions to these challenges, including the Supporting Apprenticeship Colleges Act in Congress.
