Hands Off Preschool

Re “Study Touts Benefits of Universal Preschool,” March 30: The Rand study based its claims of cost savings on “high-quality” preschool programs, and that is my major concern. California has proved itself incapable of providing high-quality elementary, middle or high school programs. Why should we believe it will do better with preschool? I think it is justified to demand that California significantly improve what exists before tackling more.
