Anyone who’s worked in our classrooms will tell you that access to early childhood education is one of the absolute strongest predictors of students’ academic success.

As a former preschool teacher, Superintendent Hoffman knows this firsthand. 

To help students reach their full potential, our state must dedicate comprehensive funding that ensures every family – regardless of their location and income – have access to high-quality pre-k and kindergarten.

This investment pays for itself. Any economist will tell you about the return on investment on quality pre-K – an estimated four to nine dollars in return for every dollar invested.

That’s why Supt. Hoffman has been a fierce advocate to ensure that every community has a quality pre-k program that meets local needs and supports young families.
