ReadyNation has made it easy for you to get involved and express your belief that America’s economic future depends on how effectively we invest in young children. If you agree with the following pledge, sign it today and show your support!
The ReadyNation Pledge
We are committed to ensuring all of our nation’s children show up for school ready to succeed.
We understand that long-term US economic strength and fiscal sustainability depend on the capabilities of the U.S. workforce.
We assert that our country’s workforce pipeline is not producing the employees we need, which can only truly be remedied by starting at the beginning.
We know from extensive research that kids who start off right are more likely to be ready to succeed in school, become part of a highly-skilled workforce, and become productive members of society. Families and communities matter in how children start off in life, and effective public and private investments in young children and their families are a vital educational success and economic growth strategy.
Note: Signing the pledge is not an endorsement of any particular policy or program. It is a way to provide evidence that you and other U.S. business people are concerned about America’s workforce development and future economic competitiveness.
