Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal announced last week that he would retool his budget-reduction strategy to preserve a six-hour day in the state's pre-K program. The governor, a Republican, had previously proposed cutting the day to four hours and cutting staff salaries by 30 percent. The new plan would shorten the school year for pre-K to 160 days, from 180, and increase class sizes from 20 to 22.
