St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, whose office has worked closely with early learning providers, supports efforts to “expand early learning scholarships and appreciates that some designation of funds for school-based pre-K programs will help those programs plan for expansion ... in a more timely manner,” said Jane Eastwood, the mayor’s education director.

Tallen had considered placing her son in a pre-K program through St. Paul schools, but worried that he might not gain a spot. With his current school being of such high quality, she said, she intends to keep him where he is. Jimmy should be a kindergartner in the fall of 2014.
