The Compass - - OPINION -

I don’t agree with it. I think it’s a sin to make lit­tle 4 and 5 year olds go to school for six or seven hours a day. I also think it would give many par­ents an easy and lazy way out. A lot of par­ents think half day Kinder­garten is an in­con­ve­nience and a full day would mean they would not have the kids at home or have to look for a sit­ter. But if full day Kinder­garten does hap­pen the gov­ern­ment needs to make sure all the sup­ports are in place for kids with dis­abil­i­ties. It means there will have to be a lot of as­sess­ments done on a lot of kids be­fore they go to school. I think that’s re­ally im­por­tant.
