Judge Orders District To Provide Kindergarten

In a number of posts in the past I have discussed why kindergarten benefits educrats and not children. Yet again we have judges interfering with due process and the constitution. The following infuriating piece appears in the Union Leader via the Nashua Telegraph.

Spelling and grammar errors as well as typos are left as an exercise for my readers.

Judge: Hudson, NH must have kindergarten by fall

NASHUA, N.H. (AP) -- A judge has ruled that the school district in Hudson, N.H., must have public kindergarten in place in time for the start of the school year this fall, even if its unfunded mandate lawsuit against the state continues in court.

The Telegraph reports that the decision, handed down last week following a court hearing, will be the subject of a special school board meeting Tuesday night.

The district had asked for an injunction preventing it from starting kindergarten while its lawsuit is pending.

In his ruling, Judge James Barry wrote that the district failed to convince the court it would suffer irreparable harm if forced to implement kindergarten under the existing state funding formula.

The suit now moves to the trial phase, expected to start in September.
