Early Childhood Network Pilot http://redriverradio.org en La.'s pre-K pilot will include Caddo and Rapides parishes http://redriverradio.org/post/las-pre-k-pilot-will-include-caddo-and-rapides-parishes <p>Caddo and Rapides parishes are among 15 selected to participate in a pilot program to develop an early childhood network that would provide&nbsp;3- and 4-year-olds with equal access to high-quality instruction. State Superintendent John White told reporters yesterday that the parishes will share in a $2.6 million grant.</p><p>“We need to end the process of hunting around for a pre-K education," White said.&nbsp;"It’s not fair to families. It’s not fair to kids. By establishing one network, we’ll be able to list all of the options with all of the best information for parents.”</p> Tue, 16 Apr 2013 16:47:06 +0000 Kate Archer Kent 26310 at http://redriverradio.org
