I'm excited to combine my diverse communications experiences with my education background to promote Stand's work.

Great news, the Legislature has restored crucial funding to kindergarten programs and early education. This funding will have a positive impact on the lives of untold Massachusetts students.

Countless supporters spoke out in favor of restoring funding to our youngest students, funding that will shape their education and put them on the right track to succeed. Over $17.5 million in funding was restored to full-day kindergarten programs, and $500,000 was restored for other early education programs.

This is truly a win for our youngest students, but the battle isn't over. We are still focused on passing our high-impact Pre-K for MA bill, giving Massachusetts students who need it most access to high-quality Pre-K. You can add your Voice of Support to that campaign here.

Working together, we can ensure every child in the Commonwealth has access to high-quality education.
