The author asserts that early childhood educators have a responsibility to become involved in the formation of public policy. To improve the advocacy skills of early childhood educators, a glossary of basic legislative terminology and descriptions of major legislative processes at the state and federal levels are provided. Particular attention is given to increase advocates' understanding of the appropriations and budget processes. (Author/RH)
