Dear Friends,
Last summer, CHILDREN AT RISK (C@R) launched The Early Investment Project to examine public investment in young children across Texas. As you may know, 90% of brain growth occurs before age 5, making early learning opportunities critical for long term success. Texans must work together to ensure that public dollars are coordinated to meet the needs of families and employers, and to maximize early learning opportunities.
nullThis month, C@R visits seven cities to engage local officials and organizations; meet with parents to discuss perception of quality child care; and urge local school districts to apply for Pre-k quality funds. You can read more on our blog, and stay tuned for the full early education report including policy recommendations in September 2016.
Very truly yours,
Dr. Bob Sanborn
President & CEO
