    This is great news for all the kids in Santa Fe and throughout the state. I would hope that the new SFPS superintendent and school board continue to push for pre-K classes to be incorporated at all Santa Fe schools, and that they are the norm in the near future.

    I also hope that the school district raises the bar for what can be taught and achieved in pre-K. Developing social skills is indeed important, but developing writing and numerical skills is, too.

    Throughout other school districts across the nation, pre-K classes are all day (the usual 9a-3p school day) and the curriculum includes writing, understanding numbers, pre-reading skills, music, computers, etc. Parents, teachers, administrators, the community and our kids need to raise our expectations when it comes to achieving success.

    Making pre-K available to every child in NM is important in giving them a solid foundation for future academic success. This is a great step in that direction.
