Pre-K Going Strong In Lacrosse
The Pre-K program within the Lacrosse School District is one that you don't have to attend. It's voluntary. But Superintendent Jerry Kember says for those that choose the program........they see results. So he doesn't know why Senator Glen Grothman would want the program dumped.
The Lacrosse School District was one of the first in the state to offer pre-k schooling. So when a state senator says he wants to scrap the program, Kember says look elsewhere.
Senator Grothman said the state shouldn't encourage new 4K programs because taxpayers can't afford them. Kember counters that pre-k is in 85 percent of the state's school districts and with three times as many students as a decade ago.
