A push for universal preschool
After watching President Obama's State of the Union Address last month one issue really stuck out in my mind - the issue of having a universal preschool policy for all American children.
This is an issue that will affect many Minnesotans as Minnesota is known to have a ever increasing achievement gap between white students and students of color. By implementing a universal preschool policy, many children would get the necessary pre-K education that they need in order to be at the same level as their peers who were able to attend a quality preschool program before entering kindergarten.
