OH, gotcha.  Gotta get them kids into school asap, eh?  But if it helps parents who wouldn't otherwise have options then perhaps it's a, uh, helpful change?

i'm 54, and my single mom had me at nursery school at age three...it was a half day, and my grandma took over in the afternoon.

i guess there are pros and cons. socialization at an early age is good...we live in an age where we don't get enough of that. i'm sure there could be negatives, too, but i don't think it's required, so it's not super intrusive.....

Where can we find more information about this online? How to apply?

My friends in Europe pay for Pre-K around 200 euros. We pay 9-10 times more monthly in NYC.

The worst pollution comes from diesel trucks.

Electric trucks are an answer, then.
They'll happen in the future.
I'm not full of doom and gloom.
For every problem, there is a can-do solution.
Hooray for America!

which section of the historic district do we raze to make room for new schools? they managed to wedge one in on 82nd, with no discernible outdoor space, and the others built in the past decade are all at 100 percent capacity -- and we don't even have a high school in the area at all.

and yes, i'd LOVE to see more electric cars, but those are staunchly opposed by too many people in federal government who keep trying to kill the idea. perhaps we can change that.

This too will pass.
To the future.

Also many buildings in Jackson Heights are burning dirty oil for heating and hot water. Not many people realize this is actually worse than all the diesel trucks. If you look at pollution maps there are dark areas all over where the buildings are. These buildings should be converted to natural gas but the Governor and local elected officials are blocking National Grid from being able to bring in more gas from NJ via a pipeline. The lungs of the children will continue to be poisoned permanently from all the micro particles in the air as politicians do nothing.
