Investing in Early Education

With help from a number of early education advocates, Senator Melisa Franzen discussed her Early Learning Scholarship Bill in the Senate’s E-12 Education Policy Committee today. The legislation will expand the program and increase flexibility for parents of scholarship students in an attempt to prepare kids for school and ultimately close the state’s achievement gap.

Shannen Brown (parent), Amy Suchie (parent) and Frank Forsberg (Minneminds) join Sen. Franzen in this video to highlight her legislation and the need for the state to continue to invest in its youngest students:
