Financing Early Childhood Education Programs: State, Federal, and Local Issues
Hustedt, Jason T.; Barnett, W. Steven
Educational Policy, v25 n1 p167-192 Jan 2011
The landscape of financing early childhood education in the U.S. is complex. Programs run the gamut from tuition-supported private centers to public programs supported by federal, state, or local funds. Different funding streams are poorly coordinated. The federal government funds several major targeted programs that are available only to specific subgroups of children. States have also tended to offer targeted programs, though in recent years several states have committed to serving all children at age 4. Types of finance models used in state preschool initiatives are examined in detail, and future opportunities to build a more cohesive system are explored. (Contains 1 table.)
