Pre-K Bills Face the Legislature in 2014

Governor Dannel Malloy's agenda includes universal access to pre-kindergarten. But in New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio is proposing universal pre-kindergarten.

What's the difference?

This hour, we ask the executive director of the Office of Early Childhood, who is working on this issue.

We also hear from a New York City reporter who is covering de Blasio's plan and the debate over how to pay for it.

Finally, we check in on another piece of legislation at the state capitol: the right to die. Should people with terminal illness have the right to choose when and how they die? We're joined by the executive director of one of the organizations pushing this legislation.

GUESTS:

  • Myra Jones-Taylor - Executive Director of Connecticut's Office of Early Childhood

  • Cyd Oppenheimer - Senior Policy Fellow at Connecticut Voices for Children

  • Beth Fertig - Education reporter for WNYC

  • Mickey MacIntyre - Chief Program Officer for Compassion & Choices
