Policy Agenda

In 2011, we commissioned a study conducted by a government relations firm to tell us where the issue of early education stood in our state among legislators and stakeholders.  The study informed the development of E3’s three-pronged legislative strategy:

1.      Define the problem by creating a statewide comprehensive kindergarten assessment. 

2.      Conduct a one-year Joint Legislative Audit Review Commission (JLARC) study to analyze and articulate funding expenditures and outcomes of programs supporting children (prenatal to age five).

3.      Show legislators that investment in early education leads to improved academic outcomes in the K-12 system through the creation of The New E3 School.
