"As the result of the Early Learn RFP, several day care centers are at risk at being closed or downsized. Many slots will be diverted to lesser known centers in and around the community. Citywide this will have a devastating effect on working families. Mayor Bloomberg's proposed city budget slashes more than 47,000 low-income and working-class children from subsidized daycare, Head Start, and afterschool programs. About 6,500 children will be left without a slot come this November as a result of Early Learn. I believe this must stop; we need to stand up AND SAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH." - Letitia James
