Letter of Support: Pre-K Parity Act
On March 27, the First Focus Campaign for Children submitted a letter of support to US Representative Joaquin Casto for his leadership in introducing the Pre-K Parity Act (H.R. 1013).
The Pre-K Teacher Parity Act would expand the Educator Expense Deduction to allow early childhood instructors to deduct up to $250 for teaching expenses. This additional resource would be beneficial for both the teachers and the students of early childhood programs.
By recognizing Head Start and Pre-Kindergarten teachers with their K-12 colleagues, the Pre-K Teacher Parity Act would acknowledge the value of early educators for our nation’s children.
