Advisors to the Governor just went through the state's budget. They made recommendations for what to fund and what to cut. Unfortunately, they have recommended that she cut out highly effective and desperately needed early learning programs.
Governor Gregoire is writing her budget at this very moment. Don't sit by and let our state's leader make a foolish decision to cut early learning programs that are proven to save money - and prepare our kids to succeed.
Kids can't wait until the recession is over to grow up. They need early learning opportunities now. Cutting early learning would hurt children and hurt our economy. Also, many early learning programs bring badly needed federal dollars to Washington state.
Take action now and send a message to the Governor: Keep early learning off the budget chopping block.
