More on Strong Start Tucson proposition: http://www.strongstarttucson.org/. “Attendance in high-quality early education is a strong predictor of future academic achievement and lifelong productivity. Strong Start Tucson believes that by increasing the city sales tax by half a cent, we can create a meaningful funding source to allow up to 8,000 Tucson children to attend a high-quality preschool program.”
