Early Education Superhero’s Unveiled

ALBUQUERQUE - New Mexico Early Educators United released their first ever political endorsements and unveiled their Early Education Superhero’s for the 2012 General Election. Superhero’s include candidates for both the New Mexico State House and State Senate and were made by Early Educators United’s Political Action Committee.

Superhero’s were selected by bipartisan statewide membership based on the candidates knowledge and views of early childhood education, including their support for the Early Learning Constitutional Amendment and their willingness to fight for adequate funding for quality, accessible, and affordable early childhood education for all children in New Mexico.

Early Educators United supports and represents privately owned and non-profit early childhood education centers throughout New Mexico whose priority is education and development of children ages 0 – 5.

 “These candidates are dedicated and committed to fighting for quality, affordability, and accessibility for early childhood education in New Mexico, that’s why we named them our Early Education Superhero’s” reports Joan Baker, co-chair of the Political Action Committee and owner of My Happy Place.
