Experts debate preschool options

In an extended debate, University of California at Berkeley researcher Bruce Fuller and Rutgers University education economics professor W. Steven Barnett defend their views on universal and targeted public preschool. In a discussion that continues throughout the week, Barnett finds universal preschool programs are superior, due to their economic efficiency, while Fuller questions whether the government should promote expensive one-size-fits-all program when studies indicate quality preschool yields lasting gains only for poor children.
