The state is increasing the funding of pre-K programs according to todays O-D. But, as the headline says, "Schools want more ..."
It's always this way isn't it? There is never enough, because schools can always dream up something to do - - like making movies and dreaming of celebrity families in language class. While new technology in the classroom can be a help, it can also be a distraction. It's better to spend time learning to conjugate avoir in French than learning "Power Point" which might be obsolete in 5 years (and can be learned on one's own anyway -- presuming that one is able to read, of course).
Before extending more money, extending the school day or school year, or extending the years of schooling that we must finance, how about ensuring that we get some value for what we already pay?
