To the editor:
This letter is in response to the recent proposal by local day-care providers to take over the pre-K program for our school district. It sounds to me like an instance in which private enterprise can do the job better and more efficiently than the government can. If these providers can return the true meaning of Universal Pre-K, which to me means everyone gets to go, than the district should allow them to do so on fiscal and moral grounds. The kids that are really being hurt are the ones that need it most, the ones whose parents cannot afford to pay for them to go, and thus they start out kindergarten behind everyone else.
