Governor Mike Pence has signed Indiana’s first state law funding for pre-kindergarten.
The law provides funding for the Family and Social Services Administration to administer a five-county, voluntary Early Education Pilot Program designed to help 15-hundred Hoosier children from low-income families attend the pre-kindergarten of their choice.
Before the law took effect, Indiana was the only state in the Midwest not providing state funding for pre-kindergarten.
