Here we go again. When the funding doesn't materialize we'll hear about cuts to programs and teacher layoffs, and the need for ANOTHER school bond. It's a great idea if funds are unlimited or if some other programs get cut in order to make the budget. It's time for fiscal responsibility.

Because after all, LMP - we don't really have any obligation to try to provide a good education for the children in our community, do we? </sarcasm>
You obviously feel that it's far more important to keep your taxes at the lowest level seen in this country for the past 60 years than to try to actually fund our public schools, and will wail at anything which might actually cost money. "Fiscal responsibility" has just become a politically correct way to say: "I've got mine, Jack. Screw you and your kids."
P.S. All my kids are grown. But I still feel a responsibility for the families raising youngsters - even if it costs me a few bucks.

Without good funding won't this be a disaster? One teacher to 26 pre-k students? Who wants their child to be a test case for something that isn't even in the state budget yet. If they can't do this right (not the right time in our deficit budget) and fully fund TK so age appropriate materials can be purchased for a true play oriented TK it will become a kindergarten for preschoolers with 26 children too young to do all that is expected of current kindergartners.
Until the state has money shouldn't this class be left to local preschools?
