The High Holy Days are always a time of personal change, as each of us reflects on the things that we did last year which we would like to change in the year to come.

The fate of AB 47 - the "Preschool for All" bill lies with the California State Senate Appropriations Committee and the Governor. We are urging them to pass and sign the bill immediately. This bill will allow access to preschool for nearly 25,000 low-income California children. Please print, sign and mail the letter to the Chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee and Governor Brown. If there are any questions, please email equalstart@betham.org. THANK YOU FOR TAKING ACTION on behalf of California's youngest learners!
