Every parent wants the best for their children. But too many public schools lack the needed facilities and teachers; quality pre-school is often too expensive; and college or technical training seems an unreachable goal because of soaring tuition costs and crippling student debts. In other high-income countries, young people have a clearer path to decent work, from early childhood to job preparation. It’s time that America also invests boldly in our children’s future.

Early childhood education increases success in school,  and leads to a lower crime rate and higher incomes later in life. In FL, OK, and WI, more than 70 percent of four-year-olds are enrolled in state pre-K, but just 31.8% are nationally. In 38 countries it is already free and universal. [12][13]
