White House Fact Sheets Detail State-by-State Impact for Early Learning Proposal
The White House released state-by-state fact sheets, outlining what states could expect to receive in federal funding to expand early learning initiatives.
The President’s proposal builds on the strong work already done by states across the country. Governors from states as diverse as Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Vermont, and West Virginia all called for expanded access to preschool to more 4-year-olds. These state leaders – regardless of party affiliation – recognize that early learning helps prepare young children for educational success, provides crucial support for families, and ultimately strengthens our nation’s economy.
The White House fact sheets explain how the President’s plan will:
- provide high-quality preschool for all 4 year olds,
- invest in high-quality infant and toddler early learning and development and
- expand effective parent and family supports.
A child’s first years offer a critically important window of opportunity to develop skills that determine their success.
