Task Force Wants State to Expand Preschool for Low-Income Families

A statewide task force recommends that Kentucky spend as much as $30-million a year to expand its pre-Kindergarten program for low-income families.

A spokesman said preschool is the smartest way for Kentucky to improve education and head off future problems.

Kentucky's public preschool program is now open to four-year-olds with family incomes no greater than about $31,000 for a family of four.

The group hopes initially to expand preschool to both three and four-year-olds of higher income families.

The chairmen of the House and Senate education committees says they support the recommendations, but also want funding for full-day Kindergarten.
