Education


Speak up for early learning

Larry L. Wewel hits the nail on the head with his guest commentary “Expanded opportunities create equity”. He talks about after-school tutoring and mentoring which does make a difference. As a teacher of over 35 years, I have seen it help, but even more important is readiness for kindergarten. Universal preschool would be the biggest help to create equity. Catching up from starting behind has proven to be extremely difficult. So to “make equitable and quality education available to every child” pre-kindergarten education is the most effective. For 57 million other children in the world, just having an education is the issue. Citizens can make a difference domestically and internationally by telling their elected officials how important it is to fund education. A phone call or email to our representatives will make a difference.
