I’ll be co-hosting Noon Edition, WFIU’s weekly public affairs show, on Friday. Since we’ll be talking about the proposed pre-K pilot program that passed the House this week, I hope you’ll join us with your questions about early childhood education in Indiana.
Joining us will be:
- Indiana University researcher Alice Cross, the co-author of a study that looked at the state’s rating system for childcare providers
- Shannon Kiely-Heider, the director of State Government Relations at Cummins, which helped established a publicly funded pre-k program in Columbus.
- State Rep. Shelli VanDenburgh, D-Crown Point, a member of the House Education Committee.
You can join us for a live chat at WFIU.ORG/NoonEdition, follow us on Twitter @noonedition or call into the program at 812-855-0811. If you can’t join us at 12:06 p.m. EST, you can leave your questions in the comments.
