Dayton-Pre-k Funding

A lot depends on next month’s state budget forecast, but expect another push by Governor Mark Dayton in 2018 to beef-up state funding for early childhood education.

He’s talking about home health visits, child care and pre-kindergarten.  Republicans and Dayton have repeatedly disagreed about pre-kindergarten in public schools.

G-O-P lawmakers contend it’s more cost-effective to target funds to at-risk students rather than spend large amounts on universal pre-K.
