No! having all day kindergarten would not give the children that much more to start with. All day kindergarten would serve only in the best interest of the union "having that much more to start with" by hiring additonal teachers, who in turn would be taxed highly by the SEA union dues for the right to work in Springboro Schools.<quoted text>
You mentioned "if we let the Parents decide early enough in a child's education ...." Not sure what you meant by that but I have a question. Wouldn't having an all day kindergarten give the children that much more to start with? There is so much talk on this site about putting the children's education first but when it comes down to it if it will cost any extra money then in reality our wallets come first.
I agree Springboro could be doing so much more for their kids. Lets offer more AP classes, lets have more intervention in the elementary schools, lets not let any kids down.
Mr. Petrey has already sent out to parents to come explore how costs for all day kindergarten could be met; doesn't Mr. Petrey know that the community has already voted down board member Don Miller's bid for charging taxpayers for his "million dollar a year" all day kindergarten program?
This suggestion for exploring all day kindergarten is further proof that the wants of the Wallets of the Teachers Union are top priority of the SEA over the individuals needs of children.
