QUALITY EDUCATION—IT’S THE PATH TO THE AMERICAN DREAM
• Universal Pre-Kindergarten will give all children an equal chance to succeed in school
• Universal Pre-Kindergarten will increase middle-class teaching jobs
• Universal Pre-Kindergarten will ease family childcare burdens
• School choice and quality education will prepare students for tomorrow’s economy
To make that American Dream possible for all children, we need excellent schools and universal pre-K. How far we go so often depends on where we start, and the playing field is not even. Universal pre-K will mean that all students start school ready to succeed, with a base knowledge of letters, numbers, colors, and the social and emotional skills to navigate a learning environment. Universal pre-K will put these services in all urban, suburban, and rural communities, to give all children an even start. And here in New York, teaching jobs are middle-class jobs! All public schools should prepare our children for success in the economy of the future.
