Early Childhood Center for District 15 in Brooklyn
We, the undersigned, hereby urge our political and education leaders to create an Early Childhood Center in District 15. While the District is quite large, we urge this center to be located along the "F" subway line, which runs through most of the zoned area. The creation of such a center will: 1.) Alleviate the overcrowding in elementary schools, which currently house pre-k classrooms. (Unprecedented residential building growth and the popularity of these neighborhoods for young families is increasing elementary enrollment in District 15.) 2.) Provide young children the necessary foundations needed for their elementary education, thus increasing the standardized test scores in later grades. 3.) Make good on the promise of "Universal Pre-K" set forth by law in NY.
