Even Start needs full funding

Letter to the editor

Posted: Monday, December 19, 2005

I am writing in regards to the full funding of the Even Start Program. This program educates the community. It needs full funding for it to continue its great goals and objectives. The program helps in the education of the young and the adult as well. It helps the young by starting new educational beginnings. It helps the adult with a second chance in life to compete within the work force.

Politicians support many programs in rehabilitating the community but do not reward those that are being productive in the community. We look to the future in funding the correctional facilities of delinquents so that their lock-up environment looks more like a Holiday Inn. These correctional facilities are becoming more expensive because they also get health and psychological benefits that come with it.

I ask the public to write letters to our political leaders so that we support more programs like Even Start. This way we support our children and our community to become more educated and more productive in meeting the educational needs of our great community in Juneau and other cities.
