Parents Protest Kindergarten Overcrowding
Parents upset their children have been wait-listed for a kindergarten program at their neighborhood school staged a rally outside City Hall in Manhattan Wednesday.
They say their children have been denied access for next year, even though their kids already attend pre-kindergarten programs at the facility.
Parents say overcrowding is to blame, and that they've previously warned the Department of Education that this was bound to happen due to the baby boom and lack of school construction.
