Universal Pre-K Social Media Language – Mayor Emanuel is making pre-kindergarten universal!

Today Mayor Emanuel announced plans to make full-day pre-kindergarten universal for 4-year-olds across Chicago! This will start with an additional 3,700 full-day seats at CPS next school year, and within four years will be available to every child in every neighborhood in the city. 

This plan focuses first on the children and families most in-need and will expand more every year to ensure universal access to high quality programs.

Once implemented, Mayor Emanuel will have added 3.5 years of classroom time since 2011 when he began shifting away from the shortest school day and the shortest school year in Illinois. And the academic results are paying off, with researchers at Stanford and the U of C pointing to Chicago as the place to learn how to improve urban education.

We encourage you to spread the word about today’s exciting Chicago Universal Pre-K announcement with your communities and networks through social media, email newsletters, and any other channels.
