What’s going on Nationally:
  • All children should have the chance to attend high quality early learning and care programs.  
  • All of our children deserve a world class education-our nation can afford to give it to them; it can’t afford not to.
  • Even though we ship tons of food overseas, millions of American children don’t have enough to eat. As a matter of fact, over 15 million live in poverty. It doesn’t have to be this way.
  • None of our children should be left alone after school; they should have a safe, supervised place where they can play and learn while parents work.
  • None of our children should suffer from violence at home, at school or in our communities. Ever.
