Subject: Early Years Project Used In US!!!
Date: Mon, 12 Apr 1999 17:10:23 EDT
well the basics anyways...I have a dear friend in Kansas...she is involved on
some committe on child care or something...at a meeting of her group...some
staunch hardliner or another was trying to justify the cutting of funds for
their projects and asked if anyone had any ideas about how to avoid the cuts
and maintain child care programs....earlier that week I had sent her the
Early Years Project website that someone, Linda I think< posted to the
list....anyway, she cited it as an example, and upon further investigation by
the comittee...they decided to set up a program similar for the children of
Kansas, I got news today that their state senate has passed the proposal and
they are under way at giving it a go! Thank you for the brilliant link Linda!
See? There is some sort of use that can come from what some call our "useless
electronic drivel" =)
Everyone say a prayer that the program is a success please....
