All about the Pre-K Now 2008 Satellite Conference
Press Release

December, 2008

Raise Your Hand Texas is pleased to announce that on December 10, 2008 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. (CT), Former Lt. Governor and Chair of RYHT, The Honorable Bill Ratliff, will join Pre-K Now and the Texas Early Childhood Education Collation (TECEC) on the National 2008 Pre-K Now Satellite Conference. This is a live, interactive event that will be broadcasted through television and the Internet.

The conference theme is "Breaking Down Barriers to Quality Pre-K" and the host is Ray Suarez of the PBS NewsHour.

Former Lt. Gov. Bill Ratliff will be an honored guest and will speak on the Texas-specific portion of the conference (presented by TECEC) which begins at 1:45 p.m. (CT). He will be joined by Texas Senators Judith Zaffirini and Leticia Van de Putte, co-authors of the pre-filed Senate Bill 21 which proposes quality full-day pre-k to all currently eligible four-year-olds, a major priority for RYHT. Please also see pre-k House Bill 130, pre-filed by Representative Diane Patrick.
