SEEd - The Support Early Education Initiative

The Support Early Education (SEEd) Campaign is an initiative of the Latino Policy Forum and the Early Childhood Education Acuerdo, a coalition of community-based organizations that focuses on giving Chicago parents the option to choose the best educational setting for their children. 

Working families should be able to choose to send their 4-year-olds to community-based organizations and not suffer the loss of full-day, full-year, high quality birth-to-five schooling and expanded family services.
