Pence Testifies in Favor of Preschool Financial Aid

by Sammy Edmonds posted Feb 14 2014 3:43PM
Governor Pence has made a rare appearance before a legislative committee, to urge approval of financial aid for preschool.  
 
A pilot voucher program for low-income families has already passed the House, but some Senate Republicans have been skeptical of both the cost and the usefulness of preschool.  
 
Pence told the Senate Education Committee he had his own doubts a few years ago, but says visiting Indiana preschools firsthand has helped persuade him it‘s an essential tool to ensure students from poor families aren‘t already behind when they start school.
