I SEE THAT YOU WRITE A LOT OF ARTICLES REGARDING THE SOUTH COLONIE SCHOOL DISTRICT. I WOULD LOVE TO SEE AN ARTICLE WRITTEN ABOUT THE PRE-KINDERGARDEN PROGRAM THEY OFFER TO ONLY A FRACTION OF THE CHILDREN. HERE IS HOW IT WORKS...IF YOUR CHILD IS LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE SELECTED IN THE LOTTERY,YOUR CHILD RECEIVES QUALITY EDUCATION PROVIDED BY CERTIFIED TEACHERS, THE OPPORTUNITY TO ATTEND SCHOOL FIVE DAYS A WEEK, AND TRANSPORTATION TO GET THERE; ALL OF WHICH GIVE YOUR CHILD HAS AN ADVANTAGE AND EASIER TRANSISTION INTO KINDERGARTEN. WHAT ABOUT THOSE CHILDREN NOT SELECTED? SORRY,YOUR CHILD GETS NONE OF THIS, ON TOP OF YOU HAVING TO DISH OUT A YEAR OF PAYING FOR PRESCHOOL ELSEWHERE, IF YOU CAN AFFORD IT. SOUTH COLONIE PRIDES THEMSELVES ON EARLY CHILDHOOD WHICH IS WHY THEY ARE OFFERING THIS PROGRAM, HOWEVER THEY ARE ONLY ALLOWING A CERTAIN NUMBER OF CHILDREN IN. WE NEVER HEAR ABOUT THAT!! IF THE DISTRICT CAN NOT GET ALL THE KIDS INTO THE PROGRAM, SHOULDNT THEY
FIGURE OUT A WAY TO DO SO TO SERVE ALL THE KIDS? SHOULDNT IT BE AN ALL OR NONE SITUATION?
