Don Berwick on Families & Children
Seeds of kids' success are sown early--beginning prenatally
Berwick focuses strongly on creating a strong support system for families with children from birth to five years of age. Currently, Massachusetts ranks 27th in enrollment of 4-year-olds in pre-kindergarten programs and has 30,000 children on wait lists
for infant, toddler and preschool care. His goal is to ensure that all children have access to pre-kindergarten care.
"As a pediatrician, I know that the seeds of success or failure in education are sown early--beginning with prenatal care, and
extending through the time a child enters school," writes Don Berwick on his campaign website.
As well, he plans on improving the preparation of new teachers and strengthening the certification
process. "The key to success in education is clear to me. It is a proud, capable, respected, and fully supported teacher workforce," Berwick said in a statement.
