A constitutional amendment to dip into the state government’s largest endowment to pay for early childhood education programs advanced Wednesday in the Senate.

    Not only is there ample fiscal analysis that supports this bill, but there is also data that links the success of students to involvement in quality early childhood education. We need to support everything we can to improve child well being!
