It’s Time to Invest In AR Kids, Pre-K Works

Pre-K is PROVEN to be the most powerful tool we have to boost student reading and achievement for a lifetime. Unfortunately we can’t serve the children who need it most, because pre-K hasn’t seen a cost of living increase since 2007. Call Governor Hutchinson at 501-682-2345 and ask him to support a $16 million funding increase for quality pre-K.
