"We're making great progress. But there's plenty of room for improvement. The gaps that remain come in the shape of race, language, and need. Equity demands bold solutions.

"That's why, this week, I will file legislation to finally eliminate the opportunity gap in early education, and, for the first time in Boston's history, offer free, high-quality prekindergarten to every single 4-year-old in our city. Our proposal is funded by tourism taxes, already paid in Boston, that produce the annual surplus in the Convention Center Fund. It's only fair that Boston's success benefits all Boston's children."

Other cities and states are further improving their early education programs while Montana is one of a very few states that doesn't even have a program.

It's time for Montana to catch up. This is not only a necessity for a better education environment but also an economic benefit that will encourage young families and professionals to bring their innovation and expertise to Montana.

Please support Early Edge Montana. It's our future.
