Tomorrow in the Education Committee meeting you will hear from Rep. Hughes on HB96 School Readiness Initiative. I ask that you pass this bill out with a favorable vote.

Participation in a high-quality preschool program ensures that at-risk children enter kindergarten on-track with their peers and reach proven benchmarks. It also increases their chances of graduating from high school, receiving post-secondary education, and obtaining a stable job, which ultimately, saves the state and taxpayers millions by avoiding costly remediation programs.
