What’s your opinion on Mayor de Blasio’s universal pre-kindergarten program? As far as NYC Dads Group member Ariel Chesler is concerned, it’s a big flop.
Chesler, an attorney and writer who has contributed to our blog in the past, recently wrote in the New York Daily News about how the free education programs for have yet to reach his Upper East Side neighborhood after two years.
“It is my understanding from speaking to my local elected officials that Education Department administrators do not believe there is a need or demand for additional pre-K programs on the Upper East Side. They are wrong,” he wrote in the Feb. 23 opinion piece.
Read his piece “Pre-K for all? Not for my family” online, and tell us in the comments what your experience has (or hasn’t) been with the mayor’s program.
