It's the question that usually follows "Does Shelby County need universal pre-k?" 

How to pay for it.

The solution could require a combination of public and private dollars. This week on WKNO-TV's Behind the Headlines, the efforts to expand pre-k are discussed by some of the major proponents. Joining host Eric Barnes is Kathy Buckman Gibson with Seeding Success; Mike Carpenter, executive director for TQEE; and city councilman Kemp Conrad. They are joined by Bill Dries, senior reporter at the Memphis Daily News.
