More Pre-K

Governor Sebelius continues to call for more spending on pre-K:

Sebelius will request that legislators increase spending for the current year to account for growth in social service programs and to repay some Medicaid funds to the federal government.

Sebelius also would like legislators to consider increasing spending for health care and early childhood education.

Given the shortcomings of the K-12 system, why should we expand it further? This is a good time to remind readers of our recent paper (PDF) on pre-K and all-day K.
