Re "California drags down nation's pre-kindergarten enrollment" (Capitol Alert, May 13): Gov. Brown failed to budget money for early learning. An early learning program would be our opportunity to focus on creating and improving the self-esteem of each child.
If we can give them self-esteem, we are less likely to have to spend upwards of $50,000 per year, per person, keeping them in prisons.
