Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne) issued the following statement regarding Thursday’s vote by the Hazleton Area School Board to restore full-day kindergarten, reversing a decision made last year to go to half-day sessions.
“I would like to thank the Hazleton Area School Board for making the right decision of standing by the children of the Hazleton area. Early childhood education provides the foundation for our youngsters to have a better chance at becoming productive adults. This is a cause that I truly believed in and I am pleased to see the school district moving in a more positive direction. Thank you for putting children first.”
