The ability to access the benefits of a pre-K education should be available for all children. As Nebraskans, we value our children’s education. We know from more than 50 years of research that the critical learning and development that shapes a child’s future begins long before a child enters kindergarten.
It is time to move from a K-12 education system to a P-12 education system.
By expanding access to pre-K we provide more young children the opportunity to develop the skills they need to succeed and prosper in the modern global economy. An investment in pre-K is a critical part of our sustainable long-term economic development, an investment that allows every child to realize their full potential.
Thankfully, State Senators Kate Sullivan and Heath Mello have shown bold leadership by prioritizing increased access to high-quality early education in Nebraska. Now, we need your help to ensure their proposal to expand pre-K funding is appropriated in the state budget this year.
Sign-on today to join Sens. Kate Sullivan and Heath Mello and a growing number of Nebraskans in support of expanding access to pre-K in our state.
