From the Fran Cronin campaign, June 22, 2017: A forum on early childhood education with state Sen. Sal DiDomenico and School Committee candidate Fran Cronin is planned for 6 p.m. June 27 at Atwood’s Tavern, 877 Cambridge St., East Cambridge. It will include an unveiling of Cronin’s vision for early childhood education in Cambridge.

“I’ve heard from too many parents who are concerned about finding a preschool for their child that is affordable and accessible,” Cronin said in an invitation to supporters.

“Research makes clear: The best advantage we can give our students to close the persistent achievement and opportunity gaps is access to high-quality preschool education. But despite the urgency, especially for our low-income students, implementation of a systemic early childhood education program has been slow,” she said. “The education of our children is too important for us to accept the status quo.”
