GoErie.com: Erie County Council expected to call for pre-K funding
by Kevin Flowers
Erie County Council is poised to show its support for a new statewide early childhood education plan.
Councilmen Phil Fatica and Andre Horton have co-sponsored a resolution on council’s Tuesday meeting agenda that asks the state Legislature to increase funding for pre-K programs across Pennsylvania as part of the Pre-K for PA campaign.
Former Pennsylvania Govs. Ed Rendell, a Democrat, and Mark Schweiker, a Republican, visited Erie last week in support of the initiative, which seeks expanded access to pre-K programs for children.
