Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Thank you, Mr. President. As we continue to deliberate this budget season, after careful consideration following our most recent hearing from the Committee on Education concerning the benefits of early childhood education in our city, we will begin to hold internal meetings with all of you to explore the possibility of introducing legislation that would propose to alter the Charter so that money dedicated each year to Childhood Education Facilities Improvement Fund will come out automatically.

While dedicating these dollars is but one step, this action certainly would be an improvement to making sure that a full and just education is provided to all of Philadelphia's children.

We look forward to discussing this possibility and will be in touch with each of your offices for further discussion.

Thank you.
