Early learning, smart investment

Children in Chelan and Douglas Counties are just heading back to school. Along with their new backpacks filled with new paper and pencils are tucked not only their hopes and dreams for bright futures, but our economic necessity, for them to grow in to the productive and skilled workers that our businesses need.

We commend the Washington Legislature for appropriating an additional $1 billion for K-12 education and an additional $22.4 million in new money for high-quality early learning for income-eligible 4-year-olds. These are both smart investments that make sense not just for children, but for the long-term strength of our economy as well.
