In a multi-pronged effort designed and deployed by Advocacy & Communication Solutions, LLC (ACS), PRE4CLE and partners throughout the state have urged Ohio Governor John Kasich, to reverse a decision that prevents the strategic use of child care funding streams. This effort in building awareness around this issue has resulted in a Cleveland Plain Dealer editorial calling on the Governor to reverse the decision. Saturday’s Plain Dealer editorial states, “Combined state and federal funding ensures that poor children can attend facilities with high ratings, places where they can learn more and grow. It’s a model that wasn’t broken until the state intervened.”
You can read the rest of the editorial here:
PRE4CLE is a comprehensive plan to ensure all 3- and 4-year old children in Cleveland have access to high-quality preschool by increasing the number of quality preschools in Cleveland; helping preschool providers improve their quality ratings; and connecting families to quality preschool programs.
