Let's make sure that the talk turns into action!
In last night's State of the Union address, President Barack Obama called upon Congress to significantly expand preschool access to all 4-year-olds from moderate- and low-income families. 

"Every dollar we invest in high-quality early education can save more than seven dollars later on—by boosting graduation rates, reducing teen pregnancy, even reducing violent crime," the president said.
