Massachusetts Fair Share

We stand up for a Massachusetts where everyone gets a fair shot, does and pays their fair share, and plays by the same rules.

Gov. Baker Budget Vetoes Include a Number Targeting Early Ed Funding

Over the last few months, Massachusetts Fair Share has been working to push funding for early education in the state budget. That’s because, over the past 15 years, early education and out-of-school-time programs have lost more than $114 million in state funding, adjusting for inflation.

Meanwhile, polling shows that Bay State residents want more early education funding, not more cuts.

Here are the line items cut by Gov. Baker:

7030-1002 Kindergarten Expansion Grants: -$17,589,713
3000-6025 Commonwealth Preschool Partnership Initiative: -$500,000
3000-4040 Income Eligible Waitlist Reduction: -$2,000,000
3000-1050 EEC Assessment: -$300,000
3000-2000 Access Management: -$300,000
3000-3060 Supportive and TANF Childcare: -$1,700,000
3000-7070 Reach Out and Read: -$300,000
