    I agree that after school mentoring and tutoring programs should be expanded. I don't see an educational value added for funding pre and pre-pre-K. This is day care, not a classroom setting. Unless children can read at 1st or 2nd grade level by the time they get out of kindergarten, it was not money well spent, education wise.
