 I live in great old california lol. The new gov. jerry brown is deciding to make cuts in education and the first program too go ( according to what the school told me) is the options program. It is a low income program for people that can't afford preschool or daycare. If they cut it there are going to be so many low income kids that are going to miss out on preschool. I don't understand why they can't cut their incomes instead. I'm so irritated by this. The school program has requested all the parents to write a letter addressed to the gov. telling him what this program has done for us and how much it has made a difference. Has anyone else been through this program? If you have please write a letter. Any thoughts on all this?

that sucks, I'm so sorry. I herd that if a child doesn't get any kind of preschool before kindergarten, they are already behind =< sorry to hear that.

well, not many schools here even have a preschool program and headstart is nearly impossible to get into....

I didn't, and I wasn't ever 'behind'.

Being a band kid for 9 years through school, I understand how budget cuts can effect programs people think the school doesn't need. I think its stupid. I hope things look up for you! Good luck :)
