2019 Joint Statement of Support for Inclusion of Increased Investment in Quality Early Care and Education in Governor, Legislature, and BESE Candidates’ Platforms

Over 60 business, advocacy and community organizations have joined Ready Louisiana in a Joint Statement for Candidate Support for Early Care and Education. The Ready Louisiana Coalition asks all candidates to include a plank in their platforms to substantially increase access to quality early care and education for Louisiana’s working families, especially for children under age four. The future of Louisiana depends on how willing we are to care for and prepare our youngest citizens. High-quality early care and education prepares our students for a smart start in life, enables families to be productive in the workforce, and serves as an economic engine for local communities.
