Obama Preschool Expansion Plan Sees States Sharing Cost

President Barack Obama said expanding preschool nationwide and setting quality standards for early-learning programs eventually will cut costs by raising graduation rates and income potential for children from lower-and middle-income families.

Obama is calling on states to share the cost with the federal government of creating universal access to pre-kindergarten programs, an initiative he outlined in his State of the Union speech.
