From Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children (http://www.papartnerships.org):
The Corbett administration is in the final days of negotiating the fiscal 2012-13 state budget with leaders in the House and Senate, making this a critical time to voice support for early learning programs!
The Senate previously restored proposed cuts to Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts and the Head Start Supplemental Assistance Program in its budget proposal, SB 1466 (http://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/billinfo/billinfo.cfm?syear=2011&sind=0&body=S&type=B&BN=1466). The House considered amendments to SB 1466 last week and restored the Senate’s cut to the Keystone STARS program as well.
Gov. Tom Corbett recognizes the importance of early childhood education. Let’s ask the governor to continue his support of quality early learning by being a champion for these funding restorations!
Go to https://secure3.convio.net/ppc/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=651 to thank Governor Corbett for his support of early learning programs and ask him to support the restorations made by the House and Senate to Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts, Keystone STARS and the Head Start Supplemental Assistance Program.
Early learning programs help our children succeed in school and life. That’s why we need your help to tell the governor: Children only get one chance to benefit from early learning and we can’t shut the door on their futures!
Advocates need tomake sure our voices are heard now – so the governor supports these restorations.
Thank you for your efforts on behalf of Pennsylvania’s youngest learners.
