Hear what policy makers need to know about funding pre-k

The Mackinac Policy Conference started yesterday. With the statehouse passing a $65 million increase for early education funding, that means about 16,000 new pre-school places for kids in Michigan. What do policy makers need to know about providing high quality early education? State of Opportunity was asked to contribute a summary of our reporting. You can listen to it here. 


And, if you're up at the crack of dawn, you can catch a livestream of "Early Childhood Education: The Unfinished Agenda" at 7am. Michigan Radio's Jennifer White will moderate a panel with: Bob Harbison from Smart Start Oklahoma; Rob Grunewald associate economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis; and Carla Thompson, vice-president of program strategy with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
