#STRONGSTART HITS SOCIAL MEDIA: Early learning advocates and individuals launched a massive Twitter campaign Monday afternoon, tweeting at the White House and encouraging President Barack Obama to stress early childhood education in his State of the Union speech one week from today. Using hashtag #StrongStart, pre-K supporters tweeted pictures of children holding up signs and messages of support for more mentions of early education in one of the biggest presidential speeches of the year.
