News stories and editorials about the state of early education in North Carolina appear almost daily. The Raleigh-based newspaper, The News & Observer, featured another piece in support of quality early education for North Carolina’s youngest children this morning.  An excerpt by authors Erwin Byrd and Lewis Pitts reads:

It’s imperative that we all ensure that they get it.”
