Indiana Senate Democrats are pushing for universal Pre-K in the state.

Senate Democratic Leader Tim Lanane laid out a plan to enroll students around the state in early childhood education programs. 
   
Lananr says high-quality Pre-K programs produce students who are more likely to graduate from high school, earn higher incomes over the course of their life and require less remediation.
   
Indiana State Superintendent Glenda Ritz says universal Pre-K would be a great addition to the state's education system.

"We need to have some earnest conversation about early learning we're just one of a handful of states in the nation that does not have early learning programming at the state level and focused on that. I'm excited about hopefully getting some work done with that," Ritz said.

Lanane plans to introduce legislation on the issue during the 2014 General Assembly.
   
That session kicks off in January.
