Food for Thought in the Treasure Coast - January 19, 2017
In the Treasure Coat, state Reps. Larry Lee Jr. and Erin Grall – both of whom serve on important education committees – spoke candidly to their constituents about the state of Florida’s youngest children at a breakfast sponsored by The Children’s Movement.
Rep. Grall (R-Vero Beach) recognized that there are many challenges ahead: "We need all the stakeholders at the table to find the solution."
Rep. Lee (D-Port St. Lucie) issued a call to action to more than 20 area residents in the audience, urging them to speak up to elected officials about supporting improvements in Florida’s free Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) program, open to all 4-year-olds in the state.
