Forty years of indisputable research tells us that investing in quality pre-K has an incredible ROI: more kids stay in school, enroll in college, are productive in the workplace and have higher earnings. In fact, well-focused investments in early education can yield to the public a return of $16 for every dollar spent.

But today only 50 percent of Minnesota kids enter kindergarten ready, a fact that stifles our kids and our community’s future.

Please contact your legislators today and tell them you support increasing access to quality pre-K!

With Parent Aware rolling out to measure pre-K program effectiveness, Minnesota legislators have the opportunity to do something huge for our littlest learners: fully fund the MinneMinds proposal, a statewide campaign to provide low-income 3- and 4-year-olds with access to these quality pre-K programs.

Make sure to contact your legislators!

Thank you!
