What is your position on TK ?

Andrew, sorry I didn't reply sooner, I missed the fact that there was a question up here for me. The Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2010 mandated all CA school districts to implement TK beginning this year. Timing for a new program isn't ideal given the funding cuts the state has imposed on schools over the last five years but TK will help kids that otherwise would have been the youngest in their class to meet kindergarten standards that are more rigorous than they were in the past. The program also serves to move the cutoff date for entering Kindergarten earlier to be more in line with the majority of other states. Lastly, I'm glad our district was able to implement TK in the manner recommended by our Kindergarten teachers.
