Seattle voters can make a game-changing choice for education in Seattle by voting yes on Proposition 1, the Families, Education, Preschool and Promise Levy.
Imagine a city with high-quality, accessible preschool and free community college. Imagine a city that provides significant financial relief to students and parents of both toddlers and college students. Seattle’s Proposition 1 will give Seattle kids something to aspire to and Seattle businesses the workforce they need to keep our economy strong for future generations.
Evidence shows that investing resources in children during the first five years of their lives is a better investment than directing them to adults. The expiring Seattle Preschool levy established a sliding-scale program that now serves 1,500 children a year. Renewal of this levy means that up to 14,000 children will benefit from Seattle’s high-quality preschool over the next seven years.
