First Focus Campaign for Children Supports Prepare All Kids Act
Kevin Lindsey (Former Staff)Early Childhood
Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) introduced the Prepare All Kids Act (S.502) on March 7, 2013. Much like the plan for pre-K that the President announced in the State of the Union, this bill would make a necessary federal investment in early childhood education by creating state-federal partnerships to fund high-quality pre-K programs. The Prepare All Kids act prioritizes access for children in low-income families, English language learners, and children with disabilities to ensure that children who often cannot access other forms of pre-K will be included in these high-quality programs. In this letter, First Focus Campaign for Children expresses our support for this legislation and thanks Senator Casey for his continued work to increase access to high-quality pre-K programs.
