WASHINGTON, D.C. | January 29, 2014 -
House Education and the Workforce Committee Chairman John Kline (R-MN) today announced a full committee hearing to discuss early childhood education and care programs.
“The president and I agree more can be done to help kids get an early start on the path to success,” Chairman Kline said. “However, with 45 federal programs tied to early childhood development and a $13 billion annual taxpayer investment, we owe it to the American people to examine the strengths and weaknesses of current initiatives before crafting new ones. Next week’s hearing will provide an opportunity to come together to discuss ways we can ensure existing federal efforts to support our youngest children and their families are working effectively and getting positive results.”
The hearing, entitled “The Foundation for Success: Discussing Early Childhood Education and Care in America,” will take place on Wednesday, February 5, at 10:00 a.m. in room 2175 of the Rayburn House Office Building. Additional information, including a witness list and a link to watch a live webcast of the hearing, will be posted here.
