Pre-K is Facing Defunding
What happened to Pre-K Funding? Yesterday, the Texas Senate Finance Panel joined the House in basically defunding Pre-K in Texas. While Pre-K was one of Governor Greg Abbott's priorities, the Texas Legislature appears to disagree. Studies have shown that quality Pre-K improves the ability of children to succeed. If our children are successful, everyone succeeds. It is critical to our workforce, improved innovation, and economic growth. To defund children is to defund the future.

These calls typically take about 2 minutes. We cannot expect our elected representatives to know our wishes if we do not tell them.
