Michigan’s pre-K program, which serves the state’s low-income children, doubled in size in just two years without sacrificing quality, according to Susan Broman, Michigan’s deputy superintendent. Broman says the state is also focusing on quality child care, moving from what she calls “child storage” to an early-learning program. The state’s programs weathered the recession and the downturn in the auto industry, but a report by the Learning Policy Institute says, “Michigan’s continuing progress remains fragile.” Broman say lawmakers need to change their funding orientation and to realize the value of putting money into these early-childhood programs. ____________________
