Ms. Nora Armenta
I am a concerned parent of a child attending Nora Sterry Early Education Center at 1747 Sawtelle Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90025 . I ask that you reconsider your decision to close this center. Early education improves the school readiness of children from all ethnic, racial and economic backgrounds, with disproportionate benefits to low-income and minority children. It is a very important part of the education process. Research tells us that the most effective way to reduce the number of children who will eventually drop out of school is for them to receive a quality comprehensive early childhood educational experience. Intervention during the early years can help reduce risk factors that can impede a child's ability to learn and succeed in school.
I would just like for you to please reconsider your decision to close this center. Myself and other parents will not stop fighting for our children.
Stop any further cuts to the Early Childhood Education program
Early Learning Benefits All Children
Children from all ethnic, racial and economic backgrounds benefit from early childhood education.
Early education increases the early reading and math skills in all children. The effects are somewhat greater for disadvantaged children.
