On October 17, 2023 representatives from the MAAEYC Organization and other early childhood champion, advocated to the Massachusetts Joint Committee on Education. We championed the H.489/S.301 bills, commonly known as the “Common Start” bill. These bills, if passed, would provide affordable and accessible high quality early education and care to promote child development and well-being and support the economy in the Commonwealth.
Our very own President Dorothy Williams(Jones),M.Ed and board member Gregg Millien spoke and together, with our written testimonies, MAAEYC Organization was honored to be there. We were so moved by the stories shared, the research presented and the inclusive nature of the legislative members.
