    UNIVERSAL PRE-K The Orlando Sentinel editorializes today in favor of local governments offering universal pre-K. They quote a Chicago study which found a $7 return for ervery dollar “invested.” There are any number of concerns here: 1) The Chicago study involved only “at risk” kids. There is no guarantee that the 7:1 return is scalable. 2) Universal pre-K can easily become a form of “free” daycare for middle-class families. 3) “Voluntary” pre-K can quickly morph into “compulsory.”
