Full Day Kindergarten is Back. Really. We Mean it This Time.

I was almost afraid to blog about this, because it seems so out of the blue in this up-and-down story of full day kindergarten.  I’m interested to hear the details….

UPDATE: In a nutshell: the full-day kindergarten issue has been solved. Federal Title I dollars will be used to fund the program; a solution that Superintendent Arlene Ackerman said only came together Friday afternoon. She said this was not an option before this week. This is a permanent fix, but will mean that money has to come from other things typically funded by Title I money, which have historically included professional development, summer programs, reduced class size initiatives, etc. No decisions have been made on what to cut.
