Alabama School Readiness Alliance (ASRA) supports the growth
of high quality pre-k in Alabama. ASRA is a joint effort of
  • Alabama Giving,
  • Alabama Partnership for Children,
  • A+ Education Partnership, and 
  • VOICES for Alabama's Children.
In 2006, these four powerful voices for children agreed that the highest priority issue facing Alabama's future was closing the achievement gaps among children entering kindergarten.

ASRA creates public awareness campaigns, collaborates with community and civic leaders, and builds support among public officials for the expansion of high-quality, voluntary pre-kindergarten to all four-year-olds in Alabama.
