Just another scam for parents to get a year of free child care paid for by PA taxpayers. Means more teachers and of course its the teachers unions that get politicians elected. Same old corruption that happens at the city level, state level and federal level. Buy the politican, get repaid by the politician, and increase taxes on the citizens.

The transitional programs is for only a few hours a day, so its not "free childcare". Most Palo Alto parents have had their kids in high quality preschools and will continue to keep them there rather than moving them for a year to Greendell then to their elementary schools. If the transitional program took place at the elementary school sites, I suspect there would be more participants.
