In last night’s State of the Union address, President Obama declared he wants to make pre-school available to every child in America:

“Every dollar we invest in high quality early-childhood education, can save more than $7 later on — by boosting graduation rates, reducing teen pregnancy, even reducing violent crime.”

Marketplace’s education reporter Amy Scott shares her thoughts on universal pre-school access, high-school funding, and Obama’s plans for higher education.
