Linda Jacobson writes about the growing efforts in state spending for preschool, and the question of long- term financial commitment when there are other options such as private programs or simply skipping pre-k.
The article also focuses on contributing factors, such financial responsibility and confusion about curriculum, that effect state and federal government decsions on funding for these programs. This article will help me research the amount and type of legislation already being considered or passed for early childhood education and the reasons for and against the funding.
