Plan To Defund Transition Kindergarten Founders In Legislature

The Los Angeles Times (3/14, Megerian) reports that a subcommittee in the California legislature has voted down Gov. Jerry Brown's (D) "elimination of transitional kindergarten, an extra year of school for children too young or unprepared for regular kindergarten. Citing research on the importance of early childhood education, advocates of transitional kindergarten have said the program will pay dividends because students will be better prepared down the line. ... Since Brown unveiled his spending plan in early January, members of his own party have repeatedly voted against some of his more controversial proposals."
