4-K? Nope

The Elmbrook School Board decided that 4-K is not going to happen.

Members opposed to 4-K questioned whether it was needed, whether it would improve long-term student achievement and whether it would be the best way to raise needed revenue as enrollment declines

Frankly, there's little (or no) evidence that 4-K is educationally useful except as cheap babysitting.

Which is it? Little or no evidence? There is evidence that 4-K can have an impact from an educational standpoint. Not that Elmbrook had interest in putting forth a curriculum that would result in such an impact. To find such curriculum one might want to venture to Saint Anthony in Milwaukee.
