Children’s Champions July 23, 2014
What does the public want from Congress? A recent poll conducted by the First Five Years Fund shows that more than 7 in 10 Americans want Congress to invest in high-quality early learning opportunities for young children. Giving children a strong start ranked second after jobs and the economy. Poll respondents are also willing to increase funding even if it causes a short term increase in the deficit or requires targeted tax revenues.
