The Chamber invites you to join business leaders and education experts for The Business Case for Pre-K, Wednesday March 20, Noon – 1:30 p.m. in our Board Room.  

Expanding Pre-K access in Kansas City isn’t just a moral issue, it’s also an economic issue. Right now 40% of job openings posted in the region require a post-secondary education degree, but just 36% of Kansas Citians hold those degrees.
