$500 Million for Preschool Development Grants in White House Proposed Budget

As predicted, spending on early childhood is an important part of President Obama's proposed fiscal 2015 budget, released on Tuesday. 

The administration is seeking $500 million to help states improve their early childhood programs, which would be in addition to the $250 million that Congress approved in its fiscal 2014 budget agreement. The White House also repeated its request for $75 billion to expand preschool nationwide, starting with the most disadvantaged students. 

My colleague Alyson Klein has a full rundown of the education elements of the fiscal 2015 budget over at Politics K-12.
