Campaigning for Better Pre-K Programs

Four years ago, voters approved an amendment calling for creation of a free, high quality pre-k program throughout the state, but the children’s campaign says the Legislature is only paying for three hours of pre-k per day, about half of what they think it should be.

"According to the National Institute for Early Education Research, only one other state in this country had a lower quality rating than Florida’s, and I think I speak for all us when I say our children deserve much, much better in the state of Florida,” says Bill Sublette of Children’s Campaign.

The Children's Campaign says they’ll be concentrating on the four men running for governor, trying to convince them that quality pre-k should be a plank in their campaigns.
