We interrupt our regular muckraking to deliver this breaking news:
We have to continue the great work of the Pittsburgh Promise and supplement it with a new program to offer free, universal high-quality early childhood education to every child in Pittsburgh...
I will pull together the stakeholders and the funding to make it happen when I am Mayor. (BP#34)
The Councilman says that "thanks to state leaders" and the "infrastructure" that is available, we can make it happen. If half of the things they say about quality early childhood education are true, this could provide Pittsburgh with several levels of benefit at once. And since it's early childhood education, nobody would be left out due to enrollment in private or parochial systems.
