Historic Investment in Early Childhood Education
“I am so proud to have been part of crafting a budget that invests in building stronger people rather than trying to repair broken ones. The way this Council has budgeted for the past three years has been an entirely new way of engaging with the issues. We are setting people up to succeed instead of waiting for them to fail. The $750,000 allocated for early childhood education is an unprecedented investment in this city’s children. We cannot have a successful New Orleans without providing avenues for learning and growth. I am so proud of this Council and this administration’s work in approving a budget this year that is truly focusing on and investing in the people of New Orleans,” said City Council President Jason Williams.
