• Georgia’s Pre-K early childhood education program has been a national model in its 20 years of existence.
• “Where does it go from here?” is a question many are pondering today.
To help answer that question, the AJC is inviting metro Atlantans to an Atlanta Forward community forum on Pre-K sponsored by PNC Bank. Attendance and parking are free, but registration’s required.
“PRE-K TURNS 20: WHAT’S NEXT?” takes place Thursday, Oct. 25, from 6:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. at Georgia Public Broadcasting studios in Midtown. Please join us there.
I’ll be moderating a panel discussion by local and national experts who will discuss in-depth the issues around early childhood learning in this state. For more information and to register, please click here.
This is Maureen again. I just want to add that we have a fantastic panel assembled, including Bright from the Start commissioner Bobby Cagle, noted education researcher Gary Henry, Sesame Workshop’s Jeanette Betancourt and Georgia pre-k teacher Regina Bowie.
If you are interested in pre-k, please make sure to attend. I will see you there.
