Early education: City measure would produce better outcomes

As a mom with a preschooler, I am happy to see Seattle’s preschool measure on the ballot for November [“Seattle mayor seeks a new city Education Department,” Local News, Sept. 2].

The measure crafted by the mayor and City Council is the only one with actual funding to make preschool affordable to families throughout Seattle. The city’s focus on high quality environments where preschoolers can play and learn will not only produce the best return on investment but also produce the best outcomes for our kids.
