President Joe Biden will reportedly propose a $200 billion initiative to provide free preschool for five million three- and four-year-old children in a speech to a joint session of Congress Wednesday.
According to the Associated Press (AP), the plan will save an average family $13,000 by giving away taxpayer funds “to help the states offer preschool, with teachers and other preschool employees earning $15 an hour.”
