When and Where Learning Occurs - New Jersey Preschools

This exhibit is a National Public Radio piece on learning happening at New Jersey preschools in low-income districts.
Young Learners at Play
Unfortunately, some do not recognize that this learning is important:
Sen. Michael Doherty, a Republican from Warren... represents a large swath of suburban New Jersey where resentment toward the extra funding of low-income schools runs deep. He is proposing that the preschools for poor kids be cut to half-day, and the $300,000 saved be spent on K-through-12 education in the suburbs.
Such thinking demonstrates the need for a Learning Museum where people can see why learning for all is so important.
