Law opens free preschool to middle class Sun Times
In a bid to become the first state to offer free preschool for anyone who wants, Gov. Blagojevich Tuesday signed his historic "Preschool for All" program into law.
Gov. Rod Blagojevich said Tuesday he'd be pleased if there were more applicants for preschool than the 10,000 additional slots for 3- and 4-year-olds funded in this state budget, even though it would force the state to find more resources in a strained state spending plan.
