This week, Mayor Murray is on a study mission on the East Coast to learn more from schools who have seen significant improvements in early learning as a result of “Preschool for All” programs.

Along with the Mayor on this study mission are Councilmembers Sally Bagshaw and Tim Burgess, as well as stakeholders from Seattle Public Schools, King County, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, SEIU Local 925, OneAmerica, the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, and more.

The group is traveling to schools in Boston and Jersey City to see these programs in action and will end the trip in Washington D.C. with a visit to the Department of Education.
