State superintendent hopes to ramp up pre-K effort




During the 2018 legislative session, Wright and the state Board of Education will be requesting an additional $6 million for early childhood education. The state currently spends $4 million to finance 14 early childhood collaboratives across the state where local school districts and other day-care providers work together to provide educational opportunities for pre-kindergarten students. With an additional $6 million, about 20 collaboratives could be added.

She said students who participated in the collaboratives created through legislation passed earlier this decade have excelled in the early grades.
