Pre-K Grants Begin, as Funding Debate Continues

The Washington Post today reviews the current state grants for pre-kindergarten expansion, framing the issue while the leading candidates for Governor express differences over the issue as part of the campaign.

From the Post article:

Earlier this year the Maryland General Assembly approved the Pre-kindergarten Expansion Act of 2014, which set aside $4.3 million to expand some pre-k classes to at least 1,500 more children. Baltimore County received about $720,500 to expand pre-k classes to about 180 more children.

Maryland already provides pre-k classes to about 29,000 low-income students, and as many as 32,000 more children might attend if they could.
