President Obama has spoken about expanding Early Childhood Programs before, but has always been met with resistance and this is no exception, as the Republicans in the House are not pleased, saying that this will cost too much money and the effects fade out over time.

The Washington Post has a nice article about Obama’s plan, while NPR provides a nice overview of the topics via the radio. Or click here to see a video of President Obama speaking on Early Childhood Education.
