Rep. Winkler Putting Forth Early Ed Bill 150 150 Way to Grow

Today, Representative Ryan Winkler will announce a bill to continue Minnesota’s investment in early childhood education, close the achievement gap, and build on the work done in 2013’s ‘Education Session.’

The bill, authored by Representative Ryan Winkler, calls for increased funding for early learning scholarships, which research has proven addresses the achievement gap, and in turn, prepares Minnesota’s children for a lifetime of success. Additionally, the bill seeks to increase the flexibility of scholarships so that every parent can choose the right program for their child.  Senator Melisa Franzen will author the bill in the Senate.

Members of the MinneMinds coalition, a statewide campaign focused on increasing Minnesota’s investment in early childhood education, will be there to support teachers, providers, parents, legislators and economists who believe increasing access to high quality early education for all Minnesotan children is the best investment our state can make.
