    In an effort to funnel more of our tax dollars into Marion County public schools, I advocate for an expansion of the state's On My Way Pre-K grant based awards for four-year-olds from low-income families. Approved programs may be located in public or private schools, licensed child cares, etc, and give children access to a high-quality Pre-K program the year before they begin Kindergarten.

    During my tenure on the Indianapolis City-County Council I was succsesful in working to pass the Pre-Kindergarten program. As a former school teacher I believe it is imperative that our children are given the opportunity and the tools to be successful students and members of our society.

    Any programs that prepare our children for future education is a plus. In order to have a vibrant, diverse and productive economy we must start with education. Pre-K programs prepare young children for structured learning environments and may also provide many of the things that children need to start off on the right track in their education endeavor such as nutrition and cognitive development.

    Some children are gifted and can benefit from pre-kindergarten education, but it should not be required.

    I support publicly funded pre-K programs as they would have qualified teachers capable of setting the foundation for long-term academic and social success and the funding would allow increased enrollment for working families.

    Let us be honest, pre-K programs serve two roles. One, they help build the basic skills needed for learning. Two, they serve as child care programs for low-income households. A child who starts off without the basic skills is at a serious disadvantage right from the get-go. A parent who lacks care and desires to, or needs to, work is unable to provide what is needed to either.
