Universal preschool: Lawmakers should approach with caution


The author discusses the negative impact universal preschool programs could have on early childhood education throughout the United States. Colleen Hroncich discusses how President Biden’s initiative under the Build Back Better Act calls for an establishment of a standardized universal preschool, the potential effects of this legislation passing, and points out the fact it has yet to pass. The paper focuses on consequences of the establishment of universal preschool and other options to take the place of this program in early childhood education.
