Letter to the Editor
As a law enforcement official for 41 years and the sitting President of the Sheriffs’ Association of Texas, I have always seen it as my job to halt the transition of children into criminals. Throughout my years in law enforcement in the state of Texas, I have come to recognize that it is vital for children to stay busy, grounded, and most importantly educated to avoid a life of criminal activity and drug abuse.
Research has shown the best way to stop this transition into crime is through high-quality pre-K. Those who do not participate in high-quality pre-K are more likely to be involved in violence and crime. The most important years of life occur during age 0-5 years of age, and it is imperative that we incorporate learning at the start of life in order to prepare children to adequately meet any challenge.
