In New York Kindergarten Becomes Mandatory!
New York state officials recently passed a bill mandating obligatory Kindergarten education for all five-year-old children living in the State thereby lowering the required age for attending school by one year. Prior to the reform, many underprivileged children were not afforded the opportunity of a Kindergarten education due to a lack of space in the classrooms across the state as a result of Kindergarten’s not being required. No longer will any child enter the first grade a step behind all the other previously educated students.
