Early childhood education matters to Latinos and everyone else

The Hill – Maria Teresa Kumar

“This presidential election will likely see the highest level of Latino voter participation in history, with some estimates projecting millions more Latinos voting in 2016 compared to 2012. As president and CEO of Voto Latino, I know that Latino voters care deeply and passionately about issues that strengthen families. And while the Latino community views immigration reform that upholds the dignity and contributions of our community as a central political and moral imperative, we are not single-issue voters. Like voters of all backgrounds, we care about the issues that most closely affect us and our families. It should be no surprise then that Latino voters are demanding policies that will shape a better future for their children, with particular emphasis on increasing investments in early childhood education. According to a new poll from the First Five Years Fund, early childhood education is among the top priorities for voters, second only to improving the quality of public education and above increasing the number of good-paying jobs.”(more)
