Analysis: Extending California Transitional Kindergarten Would Cost $1.46 Billion

EdSource Today (3/13, Mongeau) reports that a new analysis from the California Department of Education finds that a bill in the California state Senate “to expand transitional kindergarten to all 4-year-olds would be more expensive than originally predicted” and would cost $1.46 billion “in addition to the $901 million already being spent on the current transitional kindergarten program.” The piece notes that the bill’s sponsor had said that the plan would cost $990 million.
