Pre-K, But Hardly Universal
The New York State Department of Education is offering the Great Neck School District additional funding for 28 4-year-olds to attend pre-kindergarten for a half-day program. In accordance with the guidelines for eligibility for the funds, a public hearing was held on March 7 at Lakeville School. Most of the people who attended serve on a Universal Pre-K Advisory Committee composed of board of education members and directors of public and private pre-kindergarten programs. The program is named "Universal Pre-Kindergarten" by the state, but all participants call the title an unfortunate misnomer as it raises expectations of a broader based, publicly funded service which is not the case.
