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.
Explain why someone should support this petition

      The level of education that students graduate high school with is already sub-par. If we take out that first foundation building block, the kids who did not attend Kindergarten will be so far behind those who did.... they will NEVER be able to close the gap! Why add that stress to growing up; it's hard enough now!

      My son will be starting Kindergarten in 2 yeras. My daughter in now attending K in the NYC schools. The work load in unbeleiveable and I do not see how this work can be done in 2 1/2 hours. I do not want my son to fall behind other children his age becuase he is not given enough time to learn the common core.
