The Top 10 Myths about Preschool
Hamm, Katie; Herman, Juliana
Center for American Progress
The Center for American Progress released a proposal in February to expand access to preschool for 3- and 4-year-olds. The Obama administration released a plan in the fiscal year 2014 budget to invest $75 billion over the next 10 years to provide all low- and moderate-income 4-year-olds with access to high-quality preschool programs through a state-federal partnership. Even though the arguments for investing in early childhood are compelling, there are still critics of expanding access to preschool. Their criticisms, however, are often based on misconceptions about early childhood education. Because high-quality preschool is exceptionally important to the future strength of the nation, it is imperative that to get the facts straight. This issue brief debunks the top 10 myths about early childhood education and the president's plan to expand preschool access.
