Obama pushes preschool programs in Georgia trip
DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — President Barack Obama on Thursday pitched a new plan to make preschool available to all 4-year-old children, declaring, "Education has to start at the earliest possible age."
With teachers as a backdrop, Obama made his case for greater access to preschool, arguing that poor children in particular can benefit. "Study after study shows that the earlier a child starts learning, the better he or she does down the road," he said. "But here's the thing: We are not doing enough to give all of our kids that chance."
It was Obama's second day on the road, after Tuesday's State of the Union address, to promote initiatives for his second term directly to the public.
