Early Learning is Key: Take Action Today

October 18, 2011 at 11:56 am Leave a comment

Washington state is applying for “Race to the Top” funding to support early learning programs for our students; and Stand for Children Washington submitted a letter of support with that application.  Now, we’re joining our partners to send a message to Congress to urge funding support for these essential programs. From now through Halloween we’re asking supporters to send congress a message to support early learning.

Send a message today with MomsRising’s Halloween-Costume-Creation-Station!

Leading economists agree that prioritizing funding to early childhood education will provide taxpayers with returns of 7-10% per year for every dollar invested, based on future reduced costs in remedial education, health, criminal justice system expenditures, and the tax revenues generated by increase earnings. That is a huge return on investment!

Early learning is a win-win-win.

We all know that kids need more than costumes this Halloween: They need a strong education foundation to help them achieve their dreams. With quality, affordable child care and preschool we can make sure our kids are ready for school and life.

Send a unique Halloween message urging Congress to prioritize kids today!

And please pass this Congressional-Halloween-Costume-Creation-Station along to your friends and family by forwarding this email now–and by posting the Congressional-Halloween-Costume-Creation-Station link above on Facebook–so we can work together to make sure the U.S. budget does not get any spookier for families!
