Fellow New Yorkers --

When it comes to education, we have to reach every single child.

To make sure that every child has the opportunity to be successful in life, we have to make big changes.

Critics called our plan too ambitious, but with 51,000 four year-olds enrolled in high-quality, full-day pre-k this year, we're already taking big strides -- and New York City parents have noticed the difference.

There's a lot more to do, and we're going to get there together.

Now let's get back to work,

Bill de Blasio
