Described by the White House as an investment “to grow the middle class,” President Joe Biden’s American Families Plan will provide free universal preschool for all children ages 3-4 and two years of free community college for all Americans, including DREAMers.

The American Families Plan will ensure “that all publicly-funded preschool is high-quality, with low student-to-teacher ratios, high-quality and developmentally appropriate curriculum, and supportive classroom environments that are inclusive for all students,” according to a White House statement released April 28.

Other highlights of the AFP include addressing teacher shortages, strengthening pipelines for teachers of color, helping current teachers earn in-demand credentials and investing in educator leadership.
