Early Learning Bills Introduced in the House and the Senate

The following post was written by Monica Bandy, education policy analyst for the Alliance for Children and Families Public Policy Office. She is a graduate student and a former Head Start teacher, who has been closely monitoring proposed early childhood education reform.
 
On Wednesday November 13th Senator Harkin (D-IA) and Representatives Miller (D-CA) and Hanna (R-NY) introduced companion early learning bills in the Senate and House, respectively. The bills propose exciting new investments in early childhood education. A summary of the contents of the bills is available online. The Alliance for Children and Families’ Early Childhood Education Leadership Board is especially excited about this new development.
 
Now is a crucial time to raise our voices in support of early learning investments! Below are some ways we can help:
 
1. On November 19th a letter urging members of the Budget Conference committee to prioritize early learning investments will be circulated. If you have any state legislators who are interested in supporting the bill please email Monica Bandy by Monday November 18th.
 
2. Show your organization's support for the bills by entering your organization name to this sign-on letter.
 
3. You can also ask your member of Congress to co-sponsor the bill.
 
We want to give a special thanks to our Early Childhood Education Leadership Board for all of their advocacy efforts over the past few months!
