Quality Early Education for All
PA is at the bottom of states across the country in adequately funding our public school system. And the inequity between school districts is appalling. As a state, we need to properly invest in education - in a way that does not put undue burden on the local property tax base.
I am also passionate about fighting for full day kindergarten for every child in Pennsylvania. It is both a human rights issue and an economic issue. Every child, no matter their families ability to pay for after school care, should start off on the right foot. And if we want to be a state that can attract 21st century businesses, we need to have an educated and trained workforce. The pipeline for workforce development starts with a quality early education.
