HSTA is not opposed to the idea of letting four year-olds start early, they are, in their words "opposed to the lack of a plan behind this specific proposition." They fear this plan will favor wealthy children and leave children of a lower economicstatuss in need of education, left out.
Lewis, and HSTA believe people should vote "No on 4" and feel a junior kindergarten system needs to be reopened and expanded.
