Public invited to Tuesday discussion on early childhood education
The Daily Courier

PRESCOTT, Arizona - Early childhood education and its future in Arizona will be the topic of discussion during a community outreach program from noon to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 1, at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

Co-sponsored by Arizona Town Hall and Arizona Deliberates, the interactive discussion is open to the public. ERAU is hosting the program in the Hangar Room of the Student Union building.

Featured presenters will include local educators Vickey Lamott, director of the Family Enrichment Center at Yavapai College; Anne Rawlings, a retired Yavapai College faculty member now working with First Things First-Prescott; and Paul Stanton, superintendent, Humboldt Unified School District, Prescott Valley.

Presenters from the state level are Tara Jackson, president of Arizona Town Hall, and Blaise Caudill, program director for Arizona Deliberates, a collaboration between Northern Arizona University, the Maricopa Community College District and family service groups.

Of the community outreach program, Jackson said, "By taking aggressive and proactive steps to ensure children's early education, Arizonans will improve the futures of our children and Arizona's long-term economy."

The outreach program resulted from recommendations that came from the recent 103rd Arizona Town Hall. That meeting brought together education, business and political leaders from throughout the state to discuss critical issues involved in supporting successful early childhood education programs in Arizona.

Among recommendations to be discussed are:

• Creating quality through cohesive vision and consistent standards;

• Encouraging collaborating and coordination across the early education community;

• Providing sustainable funding sources to ensure availability and affordability;

• Engaging in a comprehensive branding and outreach campaign;

• Recruiting, developing and retraining quality early childhood educators.

Those who would like to participate can register at or by calling Arizona Town Hall at 602-252-9600. The cost is $10, which includes lunch. Students may attend for free.
