StateImpact: When Education Starts Early, Kids Benefit

This month, the Family and Social Services Administration will announce the five counties selected to participate in the state’s new pre-k pilot program, Indiana’s first big move toward making preschool a priority.

In our weekly education feature, StateImpact Indiana’s Claire McInerny has more on brain development from birth to age four.

You can find more from our StateImpact Indiana team covering education at their website, and every Thursday on 89.1 WBOI.
