Only 3 out of 10 children (ages 3-4) were enrolled in Washington preschool programs last year, but a publicly-funded universal pre-k measure is on the November ballot. What would universal pre-k look like in Seattle, and how should it be funded? Seattle CityClub, Seattle Channel, and Town Hall will host a live, interactive conversation about this proposed project. Discuss potential costs of the measure, and long-term impacts on family access, educators, and equitable pay for childcare workers. Panelists include Seattle City Councilmember Tim Burgess. Make sure your voice is heard! Come to Town Hall or weigh in online, where you can take part in the polls and voice your opinion via social media and e-mail. Submit your thoughts and opinions on this issue via the Seattle Speaks Pre-Poll!
