Governor Brown Fails to Include New Money for Early Childhood Education

Sacramento, CA...California Fair Share today expressed disappointment with Gov. Brown’s decision to include no new funding for early childhood education in his revised budget proposal and pledged to keep organizing educators, parents and others until he changes his mind. “Everyone in California should get a fair shot in life and it starts with a quality education,” said Jason Pfeifle, State Director for California Fair Share. “States from Oklahoma to Massachusetts are crossing ideological boundaries to embrace high-quality, affordable, early childhood education programs and California should follow.”...







Pfeifle noted that only about half of 3- and 4-year-olds in California are enrolled in high-quality education and prior budget cuts have resulted in 110,000 fewer slots in the state’s early learning and care system. But with a projected increase of $2.4 billion in state revenue, enough money exists to restore previous cuts and expand access to early learning. California Fair Share is organizing across the state to marshal public support for pre-K, targeting educators, gathering petition signatures, and attending rallies and forums.



“California legislators should fix Governor Brown’s mistake and increase investment in high-quality, early childhood education,” Pfeifle said.



Pfeifle noted that momentum is building across the country for expanding early childhood education. On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) is expected to consider, for the first time ever, the Strong Start for America’s Children Act, a measure that would greatly expand access to early learning through a state-federal partnership.

Continuing to drink the Liberal Kool-Aid will not get Ca. out of the HUGE mess it is in and even Gov. "Moonbeam" has to come down to earth eventually, and he knows it. Spending must be cut across the board. Remember , baseline budgeting means a cut is a reduction in the amount spending will grow. Get over it!

    Actually, Brown is done a good job of getting the budget balanced and keeping the Democrats in the Legislature from spending all the money. It is way too partisan to not be willing to acknowledge when a job is well done just because the person doing it is in the other party.

    We have one of the best governors in the US right now. And it's been quite a while since that was true.

      I made the opening comment and that is my point exactly. You have to have blinders on to not see what needs to be done. Gov Brown is apparently trying to do what needs to be done. He is not drinking the Kool-Aid.
