Leading on Opportunity is a new way of life in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. It is a journey, which depends upon getting connected and growing together to achieve a new future for our community.
#AllInForEd :: A Community Conversation on Early Childhood Education
Presented by Bank of America in support of the Leading on Opportunity Council
Leading on Opportunity is all in for education because too many of our children start kindergarten without the skills to success. The Opportunity Task Force Report identified access to early care and education as a barrier to economic opportunity, and will host a community conversation to help share ::
- The impact of early childhood education on economic opportunity
- The effects of the lack of early childhood education on the Charlotte-Mecklenburg community
- The role we can all play in charting a path forward.
Please join the Leading on Opportunity Council and the Charlotte Business Journal on January 17 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. for a discussion with Charlotte community leaders on the impact and importance of early childhood education.
Joining the conversation will be:
Janet Singerman, President, Child Care Resources
Susan Butler-Staub, CPCC Early Childhood Education Program Co-chair
Sean Garrett, Executive Director, United Way of Central Carolinas
Federico Rios, Parent, Education Advocate and member of the Leading on Opportunity Council
Conversation moderated by Andrea Smith, chief administrative officer for Bank of America and Leading on Opportunity Council
