Eye On Boise

Idaho ranks among lowest for preschool enrollment, especially among low-income kids

Idaho ranks near the bottom nationally for preschool enrollment, particularly in low-income households, Idaho Education News reports today. A study released today by the Annie E. Casey Foundation found that only five states ranked lower than Idaho on that measure; forty states offer public preschool, but Idaho is not among them. You can read Idaho EdNews reporter Kevin Richert’s full report here, which notes that public preschool may get some attention in the upcoming legislative session, with Boise Democratic Rep. Hy Kloc working on legislation.
