Full day kindergarten is coming to Oregon schools. The new law requires public schools to offer that option by 2015. State Senator Chris Telfer of Bend voted in favor of the idea. "Its not necessarily an unfunded mandate. If that were the case, I probably would've had trouble with the vote. But I have a five year old granddaughter and her name is Sophia, and she's ready to go to school; her, and all her little friends.  And studies have shown that you know if our children prior into getting into third grade can read by the time they get there and that means early education. We have less problems with them later in life." Senator Telfer was a guest this morning on 11-10 KBND’s “Your Town;” she'll be on again on Monday, September 29th at 8:30 a.m.
