Targeted or Universal Preschool? Not Enough Debate In Illinois

This Washington Post article (California Initiative Renews Preschool Debate) doesn't mention Illinois as one of the states where the targeted vs. universal preschool argument is going on, but Illinois has increased preschool spending over several years now and claims it's going to be the first state in the country "to make all 3- and 4-year-olds eligible for state-funded preschool" (whatever that means). Sadly, however, there's been notably little debate over whether the universal approach is the best way to go.
