Investment in early childhood education is critical, but can’t be done at the cost of cutting funds from our public schools. Separate investment in early childhood education is crucial to adequately preparing students and to help close the achievement gap for children from lower-income families. Because it lays the groundwork for children’s learning, it’s the most strategic investment we can make in education. Moreover, this type of affordable access to childcare ensures that parents can pursue their careers and provide an economically stable home for their children. Sandra is an active member of the Raising California Together coalition, championing investment in early childhood education.
