At the annual CPS State of  the Schools address Friday, Greg Landsman wiped a tear away when recalling a time he had to explain to his grade school daughter the importance of the Preschool Promise initiative. Thinking there were just a few kids who couldn't afford to attend, she wanted to know their names.

But the list of names was far too long for her father to recite. 

This fall, Cincinnati Public Schools will increase the number of preschool seats from 1,200 to 1,500. But Landsman says there are 9,000 three and four-year olds in Cincinnati. He says there are existing programs and some state and federal funding, but it's not enough.
