Washington state misses cut for new federal preschool dollars

Washington State fell short in a competition among states to win new federal money to expand the availability of subsidized preschool, according to state and federal officials who announced the winners on Wednesday.

Washington was one of the 36 applicants for the grants, but was not among the 18 selected.
