In his State of the Union speech on Tuesday night, President Obama pledged to “make high-quality preschool available to every single child in America.”
On Thursday, details began to emerge about what that pledge would actually involve. According to the New York Times, Obama is proposing that "the federal government work with states to provide preschool for every 4-year-old from low- and moderate-income families."
The Times cited a report that in 2010-11, state-financed programs enrolled about 28 percent of all 4-year-olds in the U.S.
Should preschool be available for every 4-year-old, or would the money — as some critics claim — be better spent elsewhere?
