Who is Pre-K for PA?
February 26, 2014
Last month, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey joined with its statewide coalition partners, to launch the Pre-K for PA campaign at events in Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, and Philadelphia.
The campaign’s goal is that all children in the Commonwealth are ready to succeed in school by ensuring that every 3- and 4-year-old has access to high-quality pre-kindergarten. To achieve this, the campaign will make increasing access to pre-k a key issue in the upcoming elections.
The Economy League will be providing the campaign with timely research and analysis on economic and educational impacts, outlining policy options for expanded pre-k, and leading outreach to the local business community.
Other partners in the coalition include the Delaware Valley Association for the Education of Young Children, Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, Mission: Readiness, Pennsylvania Association for the Education of Young Children, Pennsylvania Head Start Association, Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children, Pittsburgh Association for the Education of Young Children, and Public Citizens for Children and Youth.
PIC is pleased to be a part of this coalition and is dedicated to spreading the word among its community of families, staff, alumni, and friends.
