Look for universal preschool to be a key initiative for Democrats in the next couple of years. Perhaps federal universal preschool will be something that Dem. candidates choose to run with in 2008. From Virginia's Gov: There's a better way. ...Many states are working to make high quality Pre-Kindergarten accessible to every family. Please. Better than what. The government's current performance with K-12 schools? The performance of Head Start? Name one large-scale universal government program that is functioning well. My colleague, Shikha Dalmia, and I looked at the unintended consequences of universal preschool here and here.
