Keep Pre-Kindergarten Program in Budget
Posted by SD48 DFL Communications Team in Letters to the Editor, News
Last year’s successful implementation of all-day kindergarten has advanced Minnesota children’s learning and achievement opportunities. Working parents have also been able to save $2,000-$15,000 a year in child-care costs. Educators and parents agree on the already positive results.
With the state’s expected $1.9 billion budget surplus Gov. Dayton is proposing continued learning preparation for 4-year-olds with access to free, full-day pre-kindergarten. Educators, community leaders and employers have in studies shown their support for the importance of early childhood education. The best future for our children and communities begins with the best equal education beginnings.
I urge both houses of our Legislature to keep this essential and long-overdue program in the budget.
