High Quality Early Education Programs Benefit Everyone
 
  
We believe that high quality early learning programs, such as Head Start and nursery school programs, help our society as a whole by providing every child with the skills necessary to succeed, not only in our education system, but in our society.  "Children need a combination of intellectual skills, motivational qualities, and socio-emotional skill to be ready for school."

A 40-year study has shown that children who have the benefit of attending high quality early education programs are more likely to graduate from high school, continue with higher education, experience fewer criminal arrests (including drug dealing crimes), rely less on welfare rograms and even be more likely to own their own home.I


We support the development of a high quality preschool education program in our area that is available to every child.  Join our local Democratic Party now.
