LOS ANGELES QUALITY PRESCHOOL ADVOCACY
“The best way to improve the American workforce in the 21st century is to invest in early education, to ensure that even the most disadvantaged children have the opportunity to succeed alongside their more advantaged peers.” – James J. Heckman, Henry Schultz Distinguished Service Professor of University of Chicago and Nobel Prize winner in Economics.
Every day, public officials make decisions that impact you, your family, and your community. Advocacy is all about getting involved and having a voice in those decisions!
Anyone can be an advocate and most people already are, whether they know it or not. All you have to do to get involved in Los Angeles preschool advocacy is talk to people about the importance of early childhood education. You can talk about your own child's experiences, what you've seen as a teacher, the advantages of preschool, or why it’s important for your community.
