California Initiative Renews Preschool Debate

Illinois is far from the only place where preschool for all is on the front burner, but in places like California the debate over the benefits of targeted vs. universal access seem much more prominent.

Some critics say helping students who have advantages will only reinforce those advantages, leaving the disadvantaged perpetually behind."
