A teacher reads to a pre-kindergarten class at Bright Beginnings Child Care in Jamaica, Queens. The organization submitted a proposal to convert its half-day classes to full-day.

There aren't enough seats in public schools for the expanded pre-k program in New York City, so the city is looking to put classes in community and religious schools. Richard Buery, deputy mayor for Strategic Policy Initiative, talks about the line between church and state in these pre-k classrooms, and the guidelines for how teachers can walk the line between cultural and religious instruction.
