Kentuckians Support Increased Funding for Quality Child Care
Prichard Committee's latest poll
A large majority of Kentuckians favor increased state funding for low-income, working families to provide quality child care and preschool for their children according to the second annual Education Poll of Kentucky. The poll, which was sponsored by the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, found 74 percent of respondents said they would strongly or somewhat support such increased funding.

"These poll results make it clear that Kentuckians recognize the value and importance of quality early care and education for our children," said Brigitte Blom Ramsey, executive director of the Prichard Committee.
"Giving our youngest citizens the strongest possible start will establish the foundation for future academic success and a strong economy. This is a critical message for our elected leaders as they make decisions about the state budget and what programs to identify for priority funding."
