The Impact of Pre-K: Discussion
TECEC and Texans Care for Children have joined forces to host an all-day event at the Texas Capitol on April 12, 2012 titled "The Impact of Pre-k in Educating the Greatest Texas of Tomorrow, Today." The purpose of the day is to gather 200 advocates, business leaders, policymakers, legislative staff, funders, and community leaders together and discuss next steps for early education in Texas.
You are invited to join your fellow advocates and community leaders for a day of discussions around issues such as pre-k quality, school readiness, high quality professional development, child care safety and quality, access to early learning opportunities for children with special needs, and much more.
In addition to breakout sessions in the afternoon, Senator Judith Zaffirini who has been a champion for high quality early education for years, is scheduled to speak. In addition, there will be a panel of business leaders speaking on why they are committed to this important issue.
The event is free unless you select to participate in the networking breakfast and lunch.
Thank you so much and we hope to see you on the 12th!
Your TECEC Team
