President Obama Prioritizes Early Education in State of the Union Address
In case you missed last night’s State of the Union address, President Obama focused a lot on his plans for early education. In his speech, President Obama acknowledged the critical role early education plays in a child’s life and the need to invest in better education early.
During his speech, the President reaffirmed the fact that, “Every dollar we invest in high-quality early childhood education can save more than seven dollars later on, by boosting graduation rates, reducing teen pregnancy, even reducing violent crime.”
E3: Elevate Early Education applauds the President for focusing on our nation’s youngest children and extends our support to help see that every child is prepared for school!
