The Roanoke Times opines, Virginia "is poised to move beyond partisan jockeying on at least one needed change to improve public schools: expanding access to preschool, the foundation upon which effective education reform rests. If only Virginia will take the opportunity. The Virginia Chamber of Commerce gave a push last week to slowly gathering momentum to integrate early childhood learning fully into the education of our young."
Progressive Point: Across the Commonwealth, our economic future and the future of our children are shared concerns. Improving the quality and availability of early childhood learning is a shared investment in our working families and Virginia businesses alike. Investing in our children now is an essential, nonpartisan commitment to our Commonwealth's shared financial future.
Senator Tim Kaine knows that investment in early education today ensures a skilled workforce ready to compete in the global economy tomorrow. The Virginia Chamber of Commerce desires investments leading to a higher quality early childhood education that will bring us to an improved and competitive Commonwealth workforce as well. Today we have the opportunity to renew our economic recovery efforts and ensure a stronger workforce for tomorrow through investment in a quality early education for all Virginia families.
