Preschool For Homeless Children

Hawaii Preschool Educates Homeless Children

It's difficult to imagine how someone without a home could afford to send his or her child to preschool. But thanks to the nationally accredited Ka Paalana Traveling Preschool, about 700 homeless children are receiving early education, the Associated Press reports via Fox News.

According to the Annie E. Casey Foundation, 16.4 million children in the United States were living in poverty in 2011. Hawaii is one of 10 states that does not have a state-funded prekindergarten program. Ka Paalana preschool is funded mostly through federal programs.
