Statement of U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan on the Strong Start for America’s Children Act Approval by the Senate HELP Committee

Press Office, (202) 401-1576,

“Ensuring that every child has access to high-quality early learning is one of the most important things we can do for the future of our children and families, and our country. The President has made that clear in our fiscal year 2015 budget proposal, and I want to congratulate Senator Harkin and the HELP Committee for taking an important step toward that goal today, by approving the Strong Start for America’s Children Act.”
