Re Dave Lawrence Jr.’s Feb. 1 article, We must invest more fully in pre-K: He is correct about VPK being important for all 4-year-olds, even though our governor and state Legislature hardly believe in any education, especially for poor and disadvantaged children — particularly boys and girls born here to undocumented parents.
I have a 6-year-old grandson and 4-year-old granddaughter who attended a Montessori school and who now attend an Archdiocese of Miami school in Miami-Dade County.
Every day, I’m amazed at how much they know, especially compared to kids the same age who, I know, as the co-founder of the Sacred Heart Outreach Center in the Homestead/Florida City area, do not or cannot attend VPK.
If you support Lawrence’s position, let your Florida legislators know.
