State officials say they are soliciting bids from school districts and others for pilot projects to overhaul pre-kindergarten classes in Louisiana. The Advocate reports the changes stem from a 2012 state law, which assigned details of the do-over to the state Department of Education and the state Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. The new setup is aimed at revamping what critics call a pre-kindergarten system that features uneven quality, standards and availability. The rate of children entering kindergarten ready to learn is 54 percent.
