GothamSchools In brief

From the notebooks of the journalists who bring you GothamSchools, the independent news organization covering the New York City schools
The reality is that significant numbers of three-year-olds already attend preschool, but there are many thousands whose families can’t afford it and have no options, setting up inequities by kindergarten and first grade. All three-year olds should be given the chance to hit the ground running with their education.
Comptroller John Liu, who is also running for mayor, in a press release explaining why he thinks the city should start spending $1 billion a year on “universal preschool” for three-year-olds. He also said the city should more than double its pre-kindergarten investment, because pre-K programs currently cannot serve all of the children who apply.
