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.

My guess is that parents are afraid that being in transitional kindergarten will stigmatize their children later on in their school career.
Or may be they are just a little afraid of a a new program in its infancy and untested.

I'd say neither of the above. Palo Alto has Young Fives, which serves the same purpose and is well-established--indeed, the transitional K kids are now Young Fives kids.
In other words, there's already a well-known existing program that does the job.
