WUNC's Capitol Bureau Chief Jessica Jones discusses the State Supreme Court case that will determine whether North Carolina is required to provide free pre-kindergarten education to all of its students

The State Supreme Court is considering whether North Carolina is required to provide free pre-kindergarten education to all of its students.

Currently, funding does not provide for universal access, but a lower court decision in 2011 held the state could not limit access to the program. Host Frank Stasio talks with Jessica Jones, WUNC’s Capitol Bureau Chief, about the case.
