Three years ago, we promised Delawareans we’d make investments that move our state forward, while getting our state’s finances in order. After digging out of a $400 million deficit, we’ve had two years of stronger revenues. And we’ve been disciplined about how we’ve spent it.

All across Delaware, from Dover to Middletown to Rehoboth, we’ve built or renovated nearly 30 beautiful schools in the last three years. Our children in Wilmington deserve no less.

We know that an early start is key to this success. That’s why, over the next three years, we’ll increase state-funded ECAP pre-k seats by 50 percent statewide.

My budget will continue this investment, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because the future of our state depends on the success of our children.

For the first time in our state’s history, we’re targeting resources toward these students who need our help the most. We call it Opportunity Funding. Districts are already putting the money to good use.

The promise we made three years ago to our children is probably the most important of all. We promised that at the end of our term, more children would be graduating ready for what comes next. And with a sense of promise about the future.
