Fairfax County 2019 Budget

We support the Fairfax County 2019 Budget as it certainly speaks to some of the priorities we outlined in our 2018 Advocacy Agenda. Thanks in large part to our advocacy efforts, including President Annan’s testimony , the county for the first time ever, committed to generating a five-year plan to provide early childhood education for the estimated 14,000 low-income children going without this care in the county. The children that do not get the opportunity to receive pre-K education enter the school system a step behind their peers; and this opportunity gap turns into an achievement gap that widens with time. We applaud the Board of Supervisors for taking this momentous first step to addressing the systemic issue.
