Christina N. Taylor

I’m writing to urge Larimer County people to take into consideration a “yes” vote on Proposition EE, a statewide tobacco/vaping tax that will allow us to present universal access to preschool for 4-12 months-olds in Colorado.

This measure will go a very long way in closing the instructional hole for our state’s preschoolers, and is an crucial first step in growing academic entry and fairness for Colorado kids.

Investigate regularly demonstrates that early childhood education is 1 of the incredibly most effective investments we can make for our little ones, with an believed return on investment decision of $8.60 for just about every greenback expended.

It is vital to note how considerably we have discovered in excess of the past few months about educational obtain in our community. As schools shut down in March due to COVID-19 restrictions, and households were forced to opt for between performing or managing their children’s remote studying, we were being plainly demonstrated just how essential public training is to our neighborhood.
