Schools Must Offer Full-Day Kindergarten


Full day kindergarten is coming to Oregon schools. Governor Kitzhaber signed a bill that requires public schools to offer the option by 2015. State Senator Mark Hass says studies show it makes a significant difference. Three-quarters of kids who can't read by the third grade have a much higher failure rate. Hass says the program will pay for itself with lower costs for drug and alcohol treatment and lower rates of crime and incarceration.
