Make Funding for Quality Early Childhood Programs a Priority

Only about half of Louisiana’s children—52%—enter kindergarten ready to learn and with the basic skills they need to succeed. These students start the race to educational success far behind with little chance to catch up—and, still worse, unable to cross the finish line. 

The good news is that we can right this wrong by prioritizing investments in quality early learning so that all students have access to high quality pre-k programs across the state of Louisiana. 

Tell your local district leaders that you want them to make funding for quality early childhood programs a priority for the youngest learners in your community.
