LAUSD plans to lengthen preschool day, cutting thousands of seats

from Southern California Public Radio

When the Los Angeles Unified school board considers the district's budget plan, it will also review a proposal to cut about 3,000 preschool seats and lengthen class time for 4-year-olds in greatest need. The School Readiness Language Development Program served more than 10,000 students last year by taking in one group of children in the morning and another in the afternoon. Instead, Superintendent Ramon Cortines wants kids to stick around for the entire school day in a preschool program called Transitional Kindergarten so the district can grow the number of full-time students and receive more funding from the state. more
