The Clinton Herald, Clinton, Iowa


Universal Preschool

President Barack Obama speaks to media at the start of a Cabinet meeting, including, from left, Education Secretary Arne Duncan, and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, at the White House in Washington. State funding for preschoolers is at a decade low and almost half of those young students are in programs that fail to meet even half of the industry standards, according to report released on Monday. Those findings, combined with Congressional reluctance to spend new dollars, complicate Obama's efforts to expand pre-kindergarten programs cross the country.
