Pre-K Graduation: Every bone in me is so against this. I will not keep my kids from participating, but I WILL NOT make a big deal of it. To me, it is not an accomplishment to be truly celebrated. Here in GA, there is a thing called lottery funded GA Pre-K. They have faced the usual budget shortfalls and cuts have been made in these tough economic times. With these issues at hand, the GA lottery funded pre-k that a friend's daughter went to, rented a local theater to hold this graduation ceremony in. Really!?!? And most of them that I know of have kids in caps and gowns! REALLY?!?! PEOPLE, it is PRE-SCHOOL!!! High School graduation is 13 years in the making. Pre-school (for some to most kids) is A YEAR long social immersion with some learning thrown in. It is a prep step to get a kid ready for the 13 years ahead.
