Funding for Pa. pre-k programs subject of hearing
A hearing on funding for pre-kindergarten programs in Pennsylvania will be held Tuesday from 2 to 4 p.m. at Curtis Hall, 1250 W. Church Rd., Wyncote.
According to advocates, funding levels for pre-k in Pennsylvania are sufficient to help only one in six children gain access to high-quality programs viewed as essential to children's success. Gov. Wolf has proposed increasing funding for early childhood education by $120 million in his 2015-16 budget.
Tuesday's hearing is sponsored by the state House Democratic Policy Committee.
