Early childhood is front and center in the Kentucky gubernatorial campaign. The candidates have expressed their opinions on the issue in speeches, debates and with the media. It’s clear that the election will impact children for years to come. The question is how. Who will do a better job making Kentucky a state where children thrive? Who is most likely to consider the needs of working families when creating a budget and setting policies. Who will pay attention to the research that demonstrates the importance of early childhood investments?
