Full-day preschool associated with increased readiness for kindergarten
Medical News Today
As every parent knows, preschool must all too often be purchased at a hefty price. In addition to the hot debate over whether preschool itself is really all that important, a new study sparks a fresh debate on whether part-day or full-day programs are best suited to prepare a child for school.

Debate aims to define universal preschool
EdSource
As public support and awareness of the importance of preschool grows at the federal, state and local level, there is a debate in the early childhood education world over how to achieve "universal preschool" and what form it should take. In San Francisco, "universal preschool" means access to free or reduced-cost slots in preschools for 4-year-olds based on family income. In New York City, it’s a new program that aims to give preschool seats to all 4-year-olds regardless of income. The term "universal preschool" means different things in different places and in politics, words matter.

Early childhood educators monitoring new regulations in Louisiana
Daily Comet
As the Louisiana Department of Education continues to take control of early childhood education across the state, educators say they’re keeping a watchful eye on proposed changes. Last month, education department officials proposed so-called streamlined licensing regulations for child care and Head Start centers. Local educators, however, have downplayed the proposal, noting similar regulations have been in place in Terrebonne and Lafourche parishes for several years.

Early education a good bipartisan issue
The New York Times via San Antonio Express-News
We Americans love children. Indeed, we love them so much that, on average, child care workers earn almost as much per hour as workers who care for animals, according to a new study from the University of California, Berkeley. We love them so much that only 38 percent of American 3-year-olds are enrolled in education programs. The average is 70 percent among the 34 industrialized countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. So if politicians are genuinely looking for a bipartisan issue to break through the Washington gridlock, here’s a suggestion: invest in early education, writes Nicholas Kristof.

Pre-K supporters say more early education could lead to lower prison numbers
WRVO-FM
Research shows a connection between early childhood education and crime. Central New York state boosters of universal pre-kindergarten say that should be an important consideration when it comes to funding quality programs. Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler says the statistics logically lead to the conclusion that pre-K prevents crime. "There’s a direct correlation between those who are involved in pre-K early education systems, and those who graduate from high school," Fowler said. "There’s also a correlation between those who do not graduate from high school to those who are in prison.”

Poor child care options hurt young parents trying to get college education
The Washington Post via Bangor Daily News
As a growing number of young parents find a way to pay for and attend college, they’re confronting a spotty and inadequate child care system that drives many to drop out or load up on debt — a problem that threatens to undermine efforts to improve social mobility for young people from low-income and minority backgrounds.
