DreamBox Learning CEO Jessie Woolley-Wilson Commends President Barack Obama’s State of the Union Call for Focus on Early Education

BELLEVUE, Wash. – January 13, 2016 — DreamBox Learning® (www.dreambox.com) CEO Jessie Woolley-Wilson responded to President Barack Obama’s remarks on the need for early education in his last State of the Union address Tuesday night:

“DreamBox Learning applauds the President’s comments in last night’s State of the Union address regarding the importance of early education in preparing every child for the workforce of the future. Math and computer science are critical skills that all children need to compete for and thrive in good-paying jobs in the future. Beyond just math and science however, it is imperative that we help today’s children learn how to learn. To succeed in school and in life, children need to truly appreciate the process and the struggle that comes with learning, and to feel the courage and the confidence that comes from genuine understanding. By becoming better learners, they’ll not only succeed in school, but they’ll adapt more easily to changing workforce needs. Even better, this approach to learning has equal benefits for all students, regardless of their background or zip code.

We look forward to working with this administration and the next to develop policies and practices to ensure all students and their learning guardians—the teachers, mentors and parents who guide the learning process—have the resources and learning experiences they need to not just educate our children, but to create a generation of life-long learners.”
