    On Wednesday, May, an article quotes Gov. Peter Shumlin as saying, ďThere isnít a Vermonter who doesnít agree that pre-K is incredibly important.Ē I, and many others, do not agree with you, Governor. First, isnít it the responsibility and right of parents to make this decision? At age 3, they are leaving the baby stage and are put into the child stage. Pre-K has them leaving home, interacting with other children who may be much older and learning pre-K rules. They should not be exposed to children old enough to have significant behavioral differences. The younger children will require nap times; bus travel is another safety issue. I ask the lawmakers to put their heads together and settle health issues, taxes and other areas we, the people, elected you to do.
