Texas Senate Passes Pre-K Bill

The Texas Senate on Thursday approved a bill to funnel up to $130 million over the next two years to pre-kindergarten programs that strive to meet certain standards, leaving Gov. Greg Abbott one step away from fulfilling a signature campaign promise to bring high-quality education programs to Texas. House Bill 4 would provide grants to existing pre-K programs that require additional teacher training, meet specific curriculum requirements and increase parental involvement.
