The Mayor of Valparaiso today issued a statement advocating the passage of a bill that would create a Pre-K pilot program. Mayor Jon Costas says many low-income students are not prepared to enter kindergarten for various cultural and economic reasons, and recent data and studies suggest providing Pre-K education to those students has positive results for them and the entire school system. House Bill 1004 would establish a five-county Pre-K pilot program and, according to Costas, would begin the process in a financially responsible manner.
