Chicago has a goal of preschool for every child. Will COVID-19 set that effort back?
“Our interpretation is that full-day, in-person pre-K was meeting the needs of many families with 4-year-olds, and that’s currently not being offered. I think that’s as far as we can take it given the data and the evidence that we have,” Ehrlich said. “...

‘We have to plan the transportation of the future,' says San Antonio mayor
SAN ANTONIO – According to the newest Bexar Facts-KSAT-San Antonio Report poll, most San Antonio residents support the 1/8 cent sales tax propositions that would fund Pre-K for S.A., transportation and job training programs. In the latest KSAT Q&A, Mayor Ron Nirenberg said he’s pleased with these results. Q: Why are we approving something now that won’t be used for transportation for several more years? “We have to plan the transportation of the future,” Nirenberg said. We have to be able to take down some of those federal funds that are due to us in order to build our transportation system of the future.
