From Eyes on Early Education

Thank you Eyes on Early Education for your support and leadership on this issue. I am excited to be working with organizations such as Early Education for All and Strategies for Children to ensure the youngest members of our community get the quality education they deserve.

“A civil society and successful communities rely on all of us participating fully. Investing in early education means that we have the opportunity to maximize the potential of children. We know through years of research that the first five years of life are critical to determining success later in life … We today are investing again in pre-kindergarten. I am so proud of the investments we are making and the opportunity you, Mr. Speaker, are offering the commonwealth with this task force on early education. Their success is our success.”
