Dr. Haas is also the chairwoman and a past president of the William Penn Foundation.“As a medical doctor, Janet Haas is dedicated to improving the lives of young children across the commonwealth,” said Governor Wolf. “The commission will benefit from her tremendous experience working with business leaders as we work to build bipartisan support for increasing our commitment to early learning.”Dr. Haas practices palliative medicine at the Abramson Cancer Center of Pennsylvania Hospital, part of the University of Pennsylvania Health System. She is board-certified in Rehabilitation Medicine and has cared for brain-injured patients at Temple University and Moss Rehabilitation Hospital.Investing in early education is a priority for Governor Wolf. In the 2018-19 budget, the governor is proposing to invest an additional $25 million in state funding, to be matched by $5 million in federal funding, to expand access to high-quality child care, as well as an increase of $40 million for high-quality early childhood education which would allow nearly 4,400 children to enroll in a program.Together with $90 million in funding increases secured over the past three years, this additional investment will more than double the funding for Pre-K Counts programs since 2014-15, and increases funding for Head Start Supplemental Assistance by 64 percent.“There is nothing more important than high-quality education. It unlocks doors to opportunities and to more successful futures,” said Janet Haas, MD, Board Chair of the William Penn Foundation. “I’m pleased to serve with Governor Wolf as Co-Chair of the Early Learning Investment Committee and thank him for his unwavering commitment to expanding early learning opportunities for children in Pennsylvania. I look forward to working with the Commission as we strive to move Pennsylvania closer to the day when every child in our state has access to the high-quality early childhood education he or she deserves.”The Pennsylvania Early Learning Investment Commission is a network of 60 senior business leaders from across Pennsylvania representing 26 counties and nearly every major industry. Commissioners are appointed by the governor to serve as advocates building awareness and support for increased public investments in early learning.Created in 2008 through an executive order signed by Governor Ed Rendell, the commission has helped Pennsylvania become a national leader for engaging business leaders on the issue of early learning.“Janet’s appointment as Honorary Co-Chair of the Commission is testament to her commitment and leadership on this and many important economic and community issues,” said Jack Brennan, Chairman Emeritus and Senior Advisor, Vanguard Group. “By leading the Pennsylvania Early Learning Investment Commission with the Governor, she will effectively and tenaciously work to ensure that Pennsylvania continues to grow its commitment to young children today to ensure a thriving and prosperous future for the Commonwealth.”last_img read more

Decision to suspend French season was premature – UEFA

UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin believes that French football’s 2019/20 season was prematurely brought to an end and he doesn’t think a decision needed to be made when it was. Ligue 1 has been brought to a close with Paris Saint-Germain declared champions, but both PSG and Lyon are still standing in the Champions League. “The decision [to cancel the season] was premature,” Ceferin said. “It’s my personal opinion that it was suspended too soon, and it’s not ideal because things can improve and play can return. “But it’s a decision for the governments, and what can the clubs do? Only respect the decision.” Ceferin’s frustration largely stems from PSG and Lyon’s continued participation in European competition. “We have two French clubs in the Champions League,” he added, “and now they’re not going to play until August. “I don’t know if not playing tough and competitive matches is good for the teams. “Games will have to be played in France or a neutral country. “They didn’t consult us because the decision was made by different organisations in France, but I don’t see why French authorities are prohibiting games without fans.”center_img Read Also: Uruguayan forward may not leave PSG this summer “It doesn’t seem as though the calendar [for next season] will be affected much,” Ceferin explained. “There isn’t much room to change things and I think everything will remain the same. “Some think it’ll start a little later, but only a few days.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… last_img read more
