Truth Test: So about Polis’ push for universal kindergarten …
Author: Brandon Rittiman, 9News - May 16, 2018 - Updated: May 17, 2018
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jared Polis cut an ad featuring his son arguing that child care is really expensive.
If you aren’t sure how true that is, find a parent and ask.
Polis is trying to sell you on the idea that he’s the guy to fix that.
CLAIM: “I’m running on a platform of bringing universal full-day pre-school and Kindergarten to every child in this state.”
VERDICT: MORE CONTEXT IS USEFUL
It’s true that this is part of Polis’ platform. Candidates get to decide what they want to stand for.
But what does that mean, exactly?
This is where more context helps, because a vote for Jared Polis doesn’t mean he can just up and do all this.
