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.
