EDUCATION: LAYING THE FOUNDATION FOR FUTURE SUCCESS
United Way advocates for public policies that expand opportunities for children ages 0-5 to enter kindergarten ready to learn and support middle school students in transitioning to high school on-track to graduate.
To ensure children receive this quality education, United Way will:
- Advocate to make high-quality, affordable early-learning opportunities available to all children
- Promote partnerships that support family engagement and community-based involvement to improve student academic achievement and social/emotional development.
- Support comprehensive and consistent assessment and measurement standards from Pre-K through high school graduation.
- Help provide supports for the whole family outside of the classroom
