One thing you haven't seen in the past few days is a ringing endorsement for the Governor's "Preschool For All" plan from anyone at the Board of Education or City Hall. (As far as I know, no one's even asked them what they think. That's interesting enough as it is. Shouldn't someone get them on the record about this?)
But if you read Cornelia Grumman's editorial in the Thursday Tribune (Preschool for some), you can guess what they'd say: what about us? There's a $328 million shortfal, and proposed budget cuts are being passed around the system like a bad cold. Unlike the current state pre-K program, the Governor's new plan isn't targeted at low- and middle-income families and doesn't give much help to Chicago.
