Sign if you agree: Children living in poverty in Chicago and across our country deserve access to high-quality early childhood education.
The research is clear: Early childhood experiences are the foundation for future success. Yet, less than half of low-income children have access to high-quality early childhood programs that could break the cycle of poverty, getting them ready to learn and succeed in kindergarten, and dramatically improve their opportunities for a brighter future.

We must be relentless in our pursuit of better education for every child here in Chicago and nationwide. Here's why:
Without high-quality learning experiences and healthy relationships, children in poverty are less likely to grow into accomplished students, successful workers and engaged citizens. When we fail to unlock the true potential of millions of children, it affects all of us.
Sign this pledge if you believe that every child — regardless of the situation they were born into — deserves the very best chance, and that a bright future starts with excellent early childhood education.
