MISSOULA, Mont. -

Montana is one of eight states in the country who doesn’t have a publicly funded pre-kindergarten.

Governor Steve Bullock wants to change this. This past week Bullock has been visiting schools throughout the state to promote his early childhood education proposal.

Schools like Head Start in Missoula would be affected by this proposal. Bullock wants high-quality, half-day pre-kindergarten programs offered to all 4-year olds.

The proposal explains that block grants will be available to Montana Public School Districts to create or expand these high-quality programs in their communities. Many of these programs are now just offered to students who are considered high-risk, but Bullock wants to change that.

“We do have the opportunity and many states have already done that, is to say let’s not just take those most at risk but provide that opportunity to every one of those students in our state,” explains Governor Steve Bullock.

Studies show that these programs help further school success rates for students like reading at grade level and graduated with a high school diploma.
