This fall, Seattle voters will consider two ballot measures that seek to improve early education programs in the city, and make them affordable to all families.

One measure sponsored by the mayor and city council would focus on 3- and 4-year-olds, and include free tuition for families who earn less than 300 percent of federal poverty level. A competing plan, backed by two child-care unions, would cover children from infancy through age 5.

Both measures raise important questions about the value of providing subsidized early education programs.

Do you support the idea of universal pre-K? Would you send your own child to a city-subsidized program? Share your thoughts and experiences in the form below. A selection of responses may be included on the blog and in print at a later date.
