Op-Ed by Think Small leader Todd Otis Featured in MinnPost

Think Small leader and early learning advocate Todd Otis wrote a column for MinnPost advocating for Parent Aware, Minnesota's quality rating system for early care programs. Otis writes: 

"For equity champions, Parent Aware is an opportunity creator. Parent Aware builds the supply of high-quality early care and education programs available to help low-income scholarship recipient children catch up to their more privileged peers, and ultimately narrow the K-12 achievement gap that threatens Minnesota’s collective future."
