White House Releases State Fact Sheets on President Obama's Early Learning Initiative

Today, the White House released factsheets detailing the State-by-State impact of President Obama's Early Learning Proposal.

The President’s proposal builds upon the work already underway in numerous states across the country. Governors from states including Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Vermont, and West Virginia, among others, have demonstrated strong leadership in early childhood education by calling for expanded access to high quality early education.  These state leaders – regardless of party affiliation – recognize that early learning helps prepare young children for educational and economic success, provides crucial support for families, and ultimately strengthens our nation’s ability to compete in the world 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.
