Gov. Deval Patrick is unveiling a school investment plan he says will expand and improve access to education for students from birth through high school.

Patrick says the plan, which totals $550 million in its first year and increases to nearly $1 billion annually over the next four years, will help ensure a high-knowledge, well-skilled workforce.

The proposal would provide universal access to early education for children from birth through age five, fully fund K-12 education and allow for extended school days in some high-need schools.

The plan would also make college more affordable and accessible and let community colleges expand efforts to provide students with skills training critical to finding work.

Patrick will include the plan in his state budget proposal he submits to lawmakers next week. (Associated Press)
