Important Conference Call on this Year’s Funding of Early Learning
Ensuring that young children have access to high-quality education is greatly dependent upon adequate funding. While Congress has made many positive steps this year, there is much still to be done. NAEYC has been invited by the National Women's Law Center (NWLC) to co-host a conference call to discuss this year’s early learning funding landscape. Please join us for this call on Monday, July 20, 2015 at 2:00 PM Eastern time to help inform your advocacy efforts on this critical issue.
Guest speaker, Joel Packer with the Committee for Education Funding, will discuss:
- This year’s funding picture for early learning and other critical supports for children and families;
- The connections between sequester cuts and caps on non-defense funding, as well as the importance of working to lift these caps; and
- The impact of these funding issues on early learning now and in the future.
This call is being co-hosted by the National Women's Law Center (NWLC), the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), Child Care Aware, the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), the Early Care and Education Consortium (ECEC), First Five Years Fund (FFYF), National Black Child Development Institute (NBDCI), National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC), and ZERO to THREE.
