Pre-K Funding at Center of Expansion Debate
The final obstacle to expanding Indiana’s preschool program comes down to money:
Senate President Pro Tem David Long says money for an online preschool program will be part of a final bill. He says the software called “Upstart” gives the state a way to reach up to a thousand kids in counties which otherwise aren’t part of Indiana’s pre-K pilot program. House Speaker Brian Bosma agrees he’s a convert, after some initial skepticism.
Bosma says online pre-K needs to be an add-on, not a substitute. He says the focus of the pre-K program needs to remain on low-income kids. The Senate still wants to spend less money overall than the House, but says it’s likely negotiators will split the difference between the 20-million-dollar increase passed by the House and the six-million set aside by the Senate.
The Senate spending included a million dollars for the online pre-K program.
Legislators are planning to adjourn next Friday.
