A Nashville high school student will be among the hundreds of students advocating for Washington D.C. lawmakers to invest in kids.
We’re Empowering Tennesseans to Be the Voice for Kids
Tennesseans overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.
This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development.
Home visiting has been proven to have a long-lasting, positive impact on the lives of kids. We have an opportunity to strengthen voluntary home visiting programs in Tennessee right now, but we need the legislature to approve it.
There are more than 1 million children under the age of 18 in Tennessee, and it is our job to be their political voice. I am passionate about children and early childhood education; therefore, I want to make sure that our leaders are going to make Tennessee’s kids a top priority.
SCAN commissioned a bipartisan polling team to conduct survey research among general election voters
in five states to gauge their opinions about early childhood education and early intervention policies.
In addition to general election voters, SCAN conducted interviews among both Democratic and Republican primary voters.
The results showed that legislators and candidates looking for issues with broad appeal that can meaningfully
improve the lives of their constituents should invest in our youngest learners and early intervention programs.
