For many parents in the United States, gone are the days of waiting until kindergarten to consider a child's education. In informal and formal ways, education is more of an emphasis for young children. Programs like infant and toddler education, and preschool and pre-k are becoming typical experiences for kids before they enter public school systems. This change has sparked debate on whether early childhood education should receive government funding in the same way as K-12 education does.
A new "In America" segment will assess this trend, and take a close look at the schools, teachers, parents and children of early childhood education. The program will also examine the availability of early childhood education programs throughout different parts of the country.
Stage and film icon James Earl Jones is the host of "In America." The program's staff is made up of award-winning videographers, producers and editors. The program's mission is to inform viewers about trends that impact the American public. "In America" has no affiliation with PBS or APT and is independently distributed to public television stations.
