Seems like an atrocious idea to cut programs that largely benefit working families who are already scraping by due to increasing rent, increasing food prices, and increasing private daycare costs.

Balancing the budget on the backs of people who make this city what it is is a mistake.

This will push more young families out of the 5 boroughs and into the suburbs. Paying out the ass for childcare for 2 years is tolerable bc 3K helps take the burden off if you can make it that long.

What this man is doing for education in this city is nothing short of embarrassing.

AND he’s lobbying hard for the old school 5 day in the office workweek. But doing next to nothing to improve conditions for commuters and now cutting this program, after other cuts to the public school budget. SMH.

We are running on fumes.

The city’s 3-K expansion is particularly vulnerable because it was fueled by federal pandemic aid that is ending. The program, which is expected to cost $470 million this year, faces an estimated $376 million shortfall in 2026, according to the state comptroller’s office.

This ain't how you get people commuting back into the city.
