The Learning Community Council got ahead of itself last week with its proposal to hire consultants to help metro-area superintendents craft a plan for expanding early childhood education, a state senator said.
The proposal should have originated with the superintendents, not the council, said State Sen. Jim Smith of Papillion. That's the path spelled out in the legislation he sponsored last session giving the council authority to fund early childhood education programs for poor children.
