Media Ignoring Universal Preschool For NCLB?

Over at the Education Writers blog, USA Today’s Richard Whitmire reminds us that universal preschool might end up being just as “big” an education issue as NCLB (Will preschool outpull NCLB?). It’s not that UPK is being ignored by the candidates -- HRC and Edwards both have preschool plans -- but, as Whitmire points out, the press still hasn’t caught on. In part, I’d argue, because preschool issues include a whole set of other players and dynamics that most K-12 folks (reporters included) don’t know much about.
