Event Explores Benefits of Early Education Programs
August 19, 2014
Richard Dunlap sat before 22 children Tuesday at Sonshine Christian Academy, reinforcing the Pre-K students’ mastery of the alphabet by using the alliterative character names from a storybook.
Dunlap, the superintendent of the Upper Darby School District, spent about 20 minutes reading “Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten” to an attentive group quick to respond to his follow-up questions. The event, organized by Pre-K For PA, was designed to publicize the benefits of high-quality, early childhood education programs and to push for improved access to them.
