Save Full-Day K and sign up for Early Childhood Education Action Day, April 12th

Education Voters

In Governor’s Corbett’s proposed budget, he eliminates the Accountability Block Grant, a state program that has supported full day Kindergarten for 62,000 students and Pre-K for 3,500 students. Early education is critical in a child’s education, enabling them to be better prepared academically and helping to close the achievement gap.  Pre-K and Full day Kindergarten also enable parents to work and reduces employee absenteeism.
Early Childhood Action Day. April 12th
Last year, over 500 advocates filled the capitol rotunda calling for continued support for high quality, early childhood programs – Pre-K Counts, Head Start, Child Care Works and Keystone STARS. Our voices could be heard throughout the capitol gaining the attention of policymakers and staff!
We have a new governor and many new members of the state legislature. This year more than ever, Pennsylvania policymaker are facing choices about how to allocate resourcesWe need you in Harrisburg on April 12 to help secure Investments in early learning programs.
Please join us and help us carry the message that early childhood education is one of the wisest investments our state can make.
