Proposals to serve 4-year-old children in public schools are currently in vogue. States have established task forces and committees on the subject. Professional organizations have explored the issue, with the National Association of Elementary School Principals recommending, as a long-range goal, that states create full-day programs for all 4-year-olds. Highly visible policymakers--including Mayor Edward I. Koch of New York City, Commissioner of Education Gordon Ambach of New York State, and Commissioner of Education Gerald N. Tirozzi of Connecticut--have helped escalate public interest in the idea.
