Letter: No to D-428 early childhood expansion

Published: Saturday, May 18, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

To the Editor:

Should District 428 spend $719,000 to create an early childhood education program next year? I vote no.

We have had numerous Head Start programs and do not need to duplicate one more at such a great cost in renovation and new hires.

I believe there are programs at the high school for early childhood development as well as numerous other programs. Low-income and welfare recipients are provided with programs now.
