We hope everyone has had a wonderful first week back to school. As students of all ages begin their new semester, we are reminded of the importance of education – especially early education.
We are proud to be the party that has fought for decades to ensure that every Arkansan has the opportunity to receive a quality education from an early age. As governor, Dale Bumpers prioritized kindergarten for all of our young ones because he knew that an investment in early education pays dividends for individuals and society as a whole.
While we remain dedicated to increased investment in our young ones through pre-K programs, the Republican Party has decided to strike any mention of pre-K in their party platform. If investing in our future isn’t their priority, what is?
