WATCH: The Promise Of Preschool

For parents, educators, and lawmakers, the promise of preschool is that children will enter school ready to learn, but, in reality, the results are mixed. In America, most parents have to pay for preschool, and quality varies. In France, as in most European countries, high quality preschool is a universal right guaranteed to all children.

This documentary follows the experiences of four families in New York, Atlanta, Bridgeport, CT and Paris, France. It reveals the range of preschool education available, from an expensive private school, to uneven federal and state programs, to an innovative big-city approach. The challenge ahead is to determine if and how a consistent level of preschool can be offered to all American children, particularly when public schools are themselves in need.
