When it comes to kids, we can all agree that children should come first. Every experience we expose children to plays a huge role in their development, especially during their first five years of life. For children, the answer to achieving success is simple. We need to invest in high-quality early childhood education. Study after study reaches the same conclusion – early learning has an enormous impact on kids’ futures. Yet here in the U.S., many of the 16 million children living in poverty do not enter school prepared because of a lack of educational resources. That’s not acceptable. We must use our voices and make it loud and clear that Congress can’t forget about investing in kids’ education!
