Improving Indiana Access to Pre-School

Preschool has been proven to close the educational gap between families with different socioeconomic statuses (SES). In Indiana, there are only private preschools that most cannot afford because of the tuition. HeadStart is a fantastic start for the expansion of universal public preschools. However, that is only the beginning of what could be done in early childhood education in Indiana.
