North Carolinians support investments in early childhood education. The comments below are from postcards that have been delivered to North Carolina legislators.
Early childhood education is important to North Carolina because:
“Government, like families, should make the right kind of investments and sacrifices to meet the needs of our children. Our welfare as a society depends on it. Our state will lose economic productivity and competitiveness if we do not ensure high quality education and health for our children now. We cannot plow under the seedling and expect a harvest.”
–Deborah D., Chapel Hill
“Children are an investment in our future. I work with early educators who are seeking to further their knowledge and education to better serve the children of NC. This program, however, is being cut. This results in less support and assistance for early educators. My position is being eliminated. This impacts not just educators, but also my family. I’m a single mother of two boys.”
-Jennifer, Western NC
