Education experts will gather at the Sheraton Grand in Sacramento today for a sold-out summit to discuss the new kindergarten approach coming California’s way.
Organizers say the transitional kindergarten year, added under legislation signed in 2010 by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger changing the kindergarten entry age, will be the first new grade in California schools since 1891, when kindergarten was added.
Among the participants: Schools chief Tom Torlakson, Democratic Sen. Joe Simitian and the designer of Proposition 98, John Mockler.
