More California kids would attend preschool under push in Legislature

California Assemblyman Kevin McCarty of Sacramento plans to introduce a nearly $2 billion package of bills to give access to preschool to all low-income 4-year-olds and more 3-year-olds. McCarty’s main bill would expand the state’s existing preschool program by about 50 percent to serve roughly 250,000 low-income kids

Early childhood education has been linked to positive outcomes from lower rates of incarceration to higher pay.
