Extra funding for pre-k in Alabama is paying off locally.
The state received $9.4 million in additional funds this year which will go towards adding 93 classrooms across the state.
Dothan’s pre-k program was able to take 18 new students and hired a new teacher and teaching assistant.
The Head Start Principal says they hope to add more pre-k classes next year. Advocates are trying to boost funding by another $100 million over the next decade.
