From our friends at Early Education for all:
Earlier this year, President Obama announced an unprecedented proposal to make more than $75 billion in new funding available for early education, child care, Head Start, pre-kindergarten and home visiting over the next 10 years. The plan recognizes the need for high-quality programs and services for infants, toddlers and preschoolers and creates the opportunity for a state-federal partnership to provide these programs for children in Massachusetts.
The president’s plan is a bold step forward and could improve the opportunities for countless young children for years to come.
But it’s not going to happen if we don’t make ourselves heard.
Wednesday, June 5, will be a prime opportunity to for us to speak up in a unified voice on behalf of young children and families across the commonwealth and the country.
Make some noise. Get people talking. Tweet. Post on Facebook. Keep the momentum going and take action!
Here are four things you can do this week:
1. Send a message to Congress asking them to take action on new early learning investments.
2. TWEET! – Please join the National Women’s Law Center (@nwlc) and special guest tweeters for a tweetchat to discuss President Obama’s early learning initiative! on June 5 from 2 – 3 PM. Use Hashtag: #PreKForAll, #prekplan.
