Why Vote Yes

Kansas City continues to surge. Everywhere you look we’re growing and thriving. That’s why it’s time to plan for the future. The Pre-K for KC plan is a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a meaningful investment in the next generation of Kansas Citians.

Investing in high-quality pre-K for Kansas City’s kids will pay off for us in both the short and long term. There is literally no better way to invest our resources. What’s more, the program will be independently evaluated for effectiveness and voters can decide whether to renew it after 10 years.

When we invest in pre-K, we ensure our students are ready to learn when they enter the K-12 system. We provide them with education during a critical time in their brain development.

We also enjoy future benefits like reduced juvenile crime, a better prepared workforce, and a strong return on our investment of $7 in savings for every $1 we invest.

For a modest sales tax increase of just 3/8 of a cent, we can generate the resources that will make a long term, lasting, meaningful impact on our city.

That’s why we need your support for the Pre-K for KC campaign.
