DISAPPOINTMENTS –
HOUSE REP. EMMA
KERR-CARPENTER
SPOKE WITH Q2 ABOUT
ABOUT FAILURE – TO PASS THE PRE-SCHOOL
FUNDING BILL.

“I REALLY THINK THAT IS
SOMETHING THAT WE AS
A STATE WE ARE GOING
TO HAVE TO CONTINUE TO LOOK AT. IT IS IN MY
MIND A TRAVESTY THAT
WE WERE NOT ABLE TO
GET THAT DONE. WE
HAVE HUNDREDS AND
THOUSANDS OF PRESCHOOLERS AND
HUNDREDS OF FAMILIES
FOR WHOM THAT IS
CRITICAL CARE. IT IS
REALLY IMPORTANT FOR
SETTING CHILDREN UP FOR SUCCESS IN
ADULTHOOD. THEY
LEARN IMPORTANT
SOCIAL SKILLS. AND THE
FACT WE DIDN’T GET IT
DONE, AND TO SAY NOTHING OF THE
TEACHERS THAT ARE
HIRED, THAT WE DIDN’T
GET IT DONE IS AWFUL.” REPRESENTATIVE
KERR-CARPENTER… ALSO PRAISED THE
FIGHTING 42 – THE
GROUP OF DEMOCRATS
IN THE HOUSE…. FOR A
UNIFIED EFFORT –
DURING THE SES
