Centre Daily Times: Letter to the Editor – Support Early Education
Letter to the editor from Bill Frantz, State College chairman of Pre-K for PA:
“Early investments minimize the need for costly and difficult interventions meant to close the achievement gap in later years. Yet available public funds help only 50 percent of 3- and 4-year-olds in Centre County get access to programs that help them get a sound educational foundation.
High-quality prekindergarten strengthens our schools because every child who arrives in kindergarten ready to learn helps the classroom become a more effective place for the learning of all children.”
