Letter: Let's give our support to early childhood education

To the editor:

As pointed out in the Dec. 3 Berkshire Eagle commentary titled, "Support state initiative to assure universal pre-K," 58.9 percent of our children in Berkshire communities are not being prepared for life skills dependent on reading.

Readers, please give serious consideration to asking your legislators to pass Act H.2874 and Act S.240 to support high-quality early childhood programs and pre-K education. As we think about gifts to give this season, what better lifelong gift can we give or receive then the gifts of reading and reason? Let's help our children and ourselves to better lives.

Peace to you and yours.

George Bissell,
