The state, city, and federal government already provide free preschool. Why not improve those existing programs :

Why not just improve or expand the 40+ year old Head Start Preschool Program, (ECEAP) Early Childhood Education Assistance Program, or Step Ahead Preschool Program? Why the need for an additional layer of high paid administrators, consultants and test providers ? See pages 20-24. Pilot programs starts with 280 kids.

@64 I don't think that Washington public schools are failing. By what measure ? The U.S. educates all it's children and I do not believe that is the case with other countries that we compare ourselves with. I believe we have choked our schools with too much testing and narrowing of what is being taught. Washington public school do innovate and have choices. Let's better what we have instead of bring in another system that will siphon off needed funding and buildings. Also, who will watch over new charters if they come to this state and who pays for that ? This initiative allows for school take over by a majority of teachers or parents. That part is extremely troubling !
