Report finds state must invest more to expand pre-K

Jan 08, 2018 3:00 pm

The Associated Press is reporting a new report is highly critical of New York state for the slow pace of expansion of its prekindergarten programs. The analysis released January 8 by the left-leaning Alliance for Quality Education found last year’s investment in full-day schooling for four-year-olds in 14 districts resulted in only 476 new openings for students. At that rate, it will take the state 163 years to offer enough spots for all four-year-old students. The report concludes that more money is needed to follow through on the state promises to provide universal pre-K throughout the state. Currently universal pre-K is only offered for 4-year-olds in New York City. Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
