Pre-K For PA
Looking back at the world of education in 2014, there was much activity. Some progress was made but there’s still room for improvement.
A top ranking U.S. Department of Education official and members of a statewide campaign to increase early learning opportunities for children swapped stories and strategies on Thursday at a Philadelphia City Hall summit.
Kids sang and danced and drew pictures as the grownups pushed for funding for quality pre-kindergarten programs.
The campaign for universal access to pre-kindergarten is growing by the thousands and, as advocates across Pennsylvania clear, it could become an issue in November.
The statewide program is dubbed “Pre-K for PA: All Children Ready To Succeed.”
