Sheriff Rahr, Chief Kimerer To Speak On Early Learning Programs Wednesday
King County Sheriff Sue Rahr will join Burien Police Chief Scott Kimerer and Normandy Park Chief Rick Kieffer in White Center on Wednesday, Sept. 15th as a report is released showing that investing in early learning programs reduces crime in the long run and saves dollars on the state’s education budget as well.
The report shows investments in high quality, voluntary early learning programs reduce the need for special education placements and other Kindergarten through Grade 12 education expenses.
“I am in favor of anything that helps kids succeed, and keeps them away from a life of crime. Early learning centers have a positive impact, I’m all for those programs”, says Rahr.
Sheriff Rahr will be joined by Normandy Park Police Chief Rick Kieffer and Burien Police Chief Scott Kimerer at the event.
