Governor Continues Push For All Day Kindergarten

Associated Press - February 25, 2014 6:33 am

Gov. Sam Brownback is visiting Kansas elementary schools to continue to build support for his proposal to expand state funding for all-day kindergarten instruction.

The Republican governor is asking legislators to increase funding for all-day classes, increasing the state support by $16 million a year over five years until it is fully funded.

Brownback on Tuesday is scheduled to visit a classroom in Silver Lake after making a similar trip on Monday to a school in Topeka.

Legislators have been slow to embrace the governor’s proposal, raising concerns about the additional expense to the state and whether any academic gains made by attending all-day classes can be sustained.

Brownback has touted the plan as a means for raising reading scores and helping at-risk students succeed.
