Should the state make kindergarten attendance mandatory?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on August 14, 2007
“Yes. Kindergarten is important for building the social and academic skills they need to be successful in the first grade.”
“Yes. Both of my kids went, and I believe they got a lot out of it.”
“I think it would be great to have some sort of standardized testing to determine if the child should be required to go, but I don’t think it should be mandatory.”
“No. I think that the public school system has failed in every other aspect, and I don’t see how kindergarten is any different.”
