Comon now... sigh

I hate our school district. It's been way more money focused in the last few years than focused on education or what's better for the kids. We're considering a move, but not sure if that's going to happen this year or not.

Now, I'm angry for completely selfish reasons. In our paper today they informed us that they're considering cutting funding for full day kindergarden for the 12-13 school year. *sigh* I'm probably going to be called a horrible parent for this one, but of all my kiddos that I was looking forward to sending off to school for a day, it would be my 5 year old. She needs the routine and structure from someone other than myself and my hubby (she is perfect at preschool at home she is very VERY challenging) And now, because our school district is concerned about the cost of full day K.. it's going to be the equivalent of preschool again (she goes half a day in the afternoons now) Why???? They already built a new school and remodeled another to accommodate full day, how is it saving money by not utilizing them? Not to mention that they need to learn so much at such a young age now, how are they going to squeeze all of that into half the time? I am solo irritated!

Okay, vent over :)

I agree with you. We have 1/2 Kindergarten and I hated it. Was told by a lot of moms here that I was crazy.

What the hell? They want to cut out Kindergarten? How stupid.

Not completely, they just want to make it half day, instead of full day. Which in my opinion sucks just as much.

I don't get the point of half day kindergarten.  By the time they get settled and do a few things, the day is over.

That sucks. We have half day and there's no time. Starting in my son's year they added a snack time because so many kid's were being shipped off to daycare too. By the time you add up circle time, specialist time, snack time, and recess they only have about twenty minutes learning time.
