I believe that investing in our children's development from the earliest age is the single most important contribution we can make to the health and wellbeing of our citizens, their capacity and the future prosperity of our state.
If we wish our state's growth to continue, then our future will increasingly be with industries that require a highly skilled and technically proficient workforce.
