Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - As North Dakota public schools begin classes tomorrow, candidate for governor Senator Ryan Taylor is unveiling an education plan.

Taylor announced the "Lasting Harvest Plan for Education" at a press conference in Fargo this afternoon.

Taylor vowed to cut student loan debt in half with a $3,000 per year "Lasting Harvest" scholarship.

His plan also calls for a $10 million state investment in Head Start and pre-kindergarten programs.

Sen. Ryan Taylor, (D) Candidate for Governor: “North Dakota is one of 10 states that provides no state funding for Head Start, currently. That's an embarrassing statistic, that we can be one of only 11 states who do not provide money for Head Start and the important goals we have in that program.”

The Jack Dalrymple campaign says the governor has long been getting the job done on education. Dalrymple is endorsed by the North Dakota Education Association.
