Early Education Programs Struggle with Minimum Funding

A report that some are calling "Little Kids Left Behind":

There are more three and four-year-olds entering state-funded pre-kindergarten programs-- but less money to teach them.
 
Advocates are concerned-- The National Institute for Early Education Research reports enrollment's up, but despite $127 million from the federal government, state spending hit a new low last year. That's down $145 per student.

Overall, that's $60 million less -- double the drop from a year earlier.
