Citizens for 1 and other organizations sign on in Joint Statement of Support for Increased Investment in Quality Early Care and Education
Organizations statewide have joined together to support increased investment in high-quality early care and education in Louisiana.
High-quality early care and education has a proven impact on promoting employment, reducing poverty and setting children on a path to life-long success, yet Louisiana spends less than 1/2 of 1% of its general funds on early learning. In fact, Louisiana has cut funding for early care and education for children under age 4 by almost 70% over the last 8 years.
