Become Sam's New Friend

Even though a number of programs have faced budget cuts, the majority of states who already have pre-k programs have maintained or strengthened their services this year. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act,served as a "down payment" on the president's early education plan and the Early Learning Challenge Grants were included in the fiscal year 2010 education budget.
