State Pre-K Funding--2013-14 Fiscal Year
Workman, Emily; Griffith, Michael; Atchison, Bruce
Education Commission of the States
The nation continues to recover from one of the worst recessions since the Great Depression. States were hit hard, incurred significant losses, and many are only just now showing signs of meaningful recovery. Whether it is efforts to bring investments in pre-K back to pre-recession levels or creating new investments, states have indicated, for the second year in a row, that investing in pre-K is a priority. And this issue is clearly a bipartisan one, with Democrats and Republicans alike showing their support for pre-K. Two of the largest investments come from Republican-controlled South Carolina and Democratically-controlled Massachusetts. Findings indicate that a total of 30 states plus D.C. increased their investments in pre-K and that, nationally, states' investment in pre-K rose by 6.9%.
