WEST FRANKFORT, IL (KFVS)- Putting our best foot forward couldn't carry anymore weight then when it comes to investing in our kids futures.
And that's why police, prosecutors and educators gathered at Denning Elementary School in West Frankfort on Thursday afternoon. They all wanted to show their support for the Fight Crime: Invest in Kids program in Illinois.
But, cuts to preschool programs by the State of Illinois over the past four years are jeopardizing thousands of kids futures.
And prosecutors say we can either pay now for the programs, or pay a lot more later on when the kids grow up.
