Volunteer to ensure pre-k is a top priority this election!
Already a Pre-K for PA supporter? Thank you! Turn your support into action and sign-up to become a Pre-K for PA volunteer. As the campaign continues to spread our message throughout the commonwealth, we are increasingly in need of volunteers for phone banks, letter campaigns, social media blitzes, poll workers, election forum/debate/rally visibility, Capitol Caravans and petitions. We would love to have you on board as we start this very important year!
This year is a big election year in Pennsylvania with seats up for grabs in the U.S. Senate, U.S. House, a Congressional special election, the Governor and Lt. Governor, PA Senate and PA House. It’s more important than ever to ensure that candidates prioritize pre-k.
Did you know that Pennsylvania ranks 18th out of 30 states that make public investments in high-quality pre-k? This is despite having increased its per capita investment by $30 million for the current fiscal year. In fact, Pennsylvania lags behind our neighbors – New Jersey is spending five times more per capita for pre-k than PA. West Virginia, which launched its pre-k program in 1983 and made it universal for all four-year-olds six years ago, is investing at three times the rate per capita than we do. If our neighboring states can prioritize pre-k, why not PA?
