The funding is intended to cover 70 percent of the state funding formula for a full day and the district would have to come up with the other 30 percent.
We need to leverage every year of growth and learning for our Minnesota children. Just as early savings for college pay greater earnings over time, so too will early learning pay strong dividends as our children Nike Hyperdunk High Tops
Gov. Mark Dayton has proposed to invest $40 million to expand participation in all day kindergarten. The funding would be available to schools that offer optional all day kindergarten free to all students in that district who want to participate.
day kindergarten for all
This is a "hit or miss" approach to access. It isn't fair, wise and doesn't provide a "uniform system of education" as noted in the Minnesota State Constitution.
First, all day kindergarten comes in various models, different levels of finance and different degrees of accessibility. Even with the governor's proposal, some Minnesota families will be paying for an additional half day of kindergarten and those costs will vary by district. Some families may not be able to access either paid or unpaid simply because it isn't available. For a Minnesota parent the question is simple: why do I pay for my child's full day of kindergarten when others don't?
We recommend fully funding all day kindergarten for all parents who want their children to participate as a basic part of the Minnesota public Nike Shoes Kobe 2017 education system. We also recommend a financial plan with a specific timeline for implementation and a clearly identified source of funding. It may take more than one school year to implement but not much more.
There are two key elements to all day kindergarten in Minnesota's public schools that need to be addressed.
Proposed legislation should be accompanied by a funded assessment to determine if expectations are being achieved. The assessment should include a follow through or assessment that documents the impact of all day kindergarten on third grade reading and math levels. Please Hypervenom Light Blue

While there is some challenge to the value of public paid schooling for students five years old or younger, we agree that the all day kindergarten experience is of value, should be publicly funded and available to parents who choose that learning for their children. We favor state funded all day kindergarten.
There are bills in the Legislature that would fund all day kindergarten for all students immediately but the funding source for these fully funded proposals isn't clearly identified. The cost goes beyond the provisions of the governor's proposal by at least another $100 million.
There is a second issue that goes to the substance of the kindergarten experience: it must be of consequence and there must be accountability to the investment. All too often we enter into a public investment with a clear understanding of what we expect but with little or no follow up on what we receive. The funding of all day kindergarten should be accompanied by a set of expectations that parents can easily understand and that can be measured, documented or observed at the end of the Hyperdunk Lux
note our perspective: parents should be able to assess and affirm the value just as the state evaluates the benefits.
