As governor pushes for more pre-K and early childhood education funding, state budget consensus and urgency remains elusive

Gov. Tom Wolf Monday was joined by education and law enforcement officials to stress the importance of providing a large increase in pre-K and early childhood education funding similar to what he offered in his proposed budget.

 

In February, the governor included as part of his $32.3 billion budget proposal a $75 million increase in early childhood education spending that includes pre-K programs and the Head Start program.
