Early childhood education is not the only program being cut by Chicago Public Schools officials.

Kindergarten is also being reduced from a full day to a half day as part of the district's money saving measures.

The programs are state funded and officials say without the money from Springfield, thousands of students will be affected.

ON Wednesday, some parents protested at the Chicago board of education meeting, upset that CPS is cutting most of its early childhood education offerings.
