WASHINGTON (AP) — Actress Jennifer Garner says education is "without a doubt the ticket out of poverty." It's that belief about the importance of schooling that brought the mother of three to Capitol Hill on Wednesday in support of legislation that aims to expand and improve early education programs. Garner, who starred in the ABC series "Alias," says she supports early education to help level the playing field for children. Garner's advocacy isn't limited to education. She was among the celebrities who testified this year before California lawmakers in support of legislation that they said would help them better protect their children from the paparazzi that follow them daily. Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill in September.
