New York City decided to cancel more than 100 Universal Pre-K programs, including five at Catholic schools in the Brooklyn Diocese. Sacred Heart Catholic Academy in Glendale was one of those programs. The cancellation news has upset Council Member Robert Holden, who represents the community of Glendale, Queens.

He wrote letters to both Mayor Bill de Blasio and Department of Education Chancellor Richard Carranza expressing his disappointment.

Council Member Holden joined Currents News to discuss what happens now to the Pre-K program.
