In lobbying individual members of the state Legislature, the coalition supporting New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s push for universal pre-Kindergarten is coming prepared with district-by-district statistics breaking down who benefits.

The stat-fact sheet, like this one below for Assemblyman David Weprin’s district, provide data on the number of children in the district, their racial identity as well as income levels.

All of this comes on a mega lobbying day at the Capitol for both UPKNYC as well as charter schools.

De Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who are meeting this afternoon, differ on how to fund universal pre-K.

Cuomo wants to fund a statewide version out of existing budget dollars, while de Blasio is pushing for a tax hike in the city, but that must be approved by Albany.
