BALTIMORE (AP) - Del. Heather Mizeur wants to make public pre-kindergarten open to all 4-year-old children, as well as 3-year-olds from lower- and middle-class families.
    
Mizeur, who is running for the Democratic nomination for governor, outlined education policy proposals on Thursday.
    
She says she would make the changes to public pre-kindergarten by the end of her first term.
    
Mizeur says she would update and expand the current child care subsidy program to provide better access through increased voucher value. The Montgomery County Democrat also says she wants to provide after school and summer programs for an additional 44,000 children.
    
Mizeur says she will outline other proposals at the Maryland State Education Association's annual convention on Friday. Gubernatorial candidates Doug Gansler, Anthony Brown and David Craig are scheduled to address the convention, too.
