Preschool for All Program Not Reaching All Illinois Children

Illinois ranks first in the nation for providing 3-year-olds access to preschool. Our Preschool for All program aims to have every 3- and 4-year-old enrolled by 2011. The latest issue of the education reform magazine Catalyst Chicago reports that, despite the advances, a majority of hard-to-reach children are not enrolled in early childhood education.
