The House Education Committee today approved a bill for improving early childhood education in Kentucky. The measure sponsored by Democratic State Representative Derrick Graham spells out the agencies that will provide various services toward that end.

Education Commissioner Terry Holiday testified for the bill. Last August, he says, more than 50 percent of Kentucky’s five-year-old children were ill-prepared for kindergarten…

Kentucky recently received a federal “Race to the Top” grant of more than 44-million dollars to upgrade the quality of its early childhood development programs.
