Law Enforcement Officials Urge Lawmakers To Support Early Childhood Education Programs

Crime and education have more in common than you may think. Law enforcement officials involved in the “Fight Crime, Invest in Kids” program are urging lawmakers to continue funding early childhood education programs. Research provided by the program shows kids who attend pre-school are less likely to wind up in prison as adults. Today, Monday, law enforcement officials from Charlevoix and Emmet Counties stopped by a Petoskey pre-school class to read to the students. 9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Drew Parfitt have more details from Petoskey.
