NY State has adopted the new Federal Core Curriculum; they have changed all standardized testing to reflect that change. However, Kindergarten half or full day is NOT required in NY. For our children to have the foundation they need to succeed in school, on these required tests and in the world they need FULL DAY Kindergarten.
People complain that the United States is not competitive enough, yet school districts are allowed to cut kindergarten at their discretion. Help us stop this, tell Governor Cuomo our kids should be guaranteed full day Kindergarten, for their futures and ours.
