Make Pre-K a Priority
September 25, 2014
Pre-K for PA’s mission ought to be a cakewalk. After all, few people don’t support high-quality early education.
And why not?
It’s an investment that provides young children the solid start they need to succeed both academically and socially in school.
That, in turn, increases the likelihood they’ll stay out of trouble, graduate high school and enroll in college or join the military, leading to better career opportunities.
High-quality pre-K programs also boost local economies by eventually producing the skilled workers new businesses need.
That’s why 10 organizations representing education, business, law enforcement and the military earlier this year launched Pre-K for PA, a campaign to ensure every 3- and 4-year-old has access to high-quality pre-K in Pennsylvania.
