Advocacy for Preschool Teachers
Thank you House Speaker DeLeo for bringing attention to the importance of preschool teachers. Our ability to recruit and retain high-level preschool teachers is critical! Studies have demonstrated that children who have a high-quality early learning experience are far more likely to graduate high school and pursue higher education. They are less likely to engage in violent/criminal activity and substance abuse. A small investment in our children's early education can make a tremendous difference!
