This article notes that there have been significant drops in preschool funding although the benefits of preschool have been enormous!
Are states and the federal government responsible for providing this early education or should it all be on the parents?
I think early education is critical for low income students. And I think it should be full day. Full day preschool made a HUGE difference for both of my children. I really thing it helped them get off to a good start in school. My daughter went private because of logistics of getting her there and back. But they were so good I kept her there for kindergaten as well.
