BROOKLYN - Local Brooklyn politicians and parents gathered at Borough Hall yesterday for a town hall meeting on universal pre-k.

More than 100 parents and community members attended the meeting hosted by New York Communities for Change.

The group is pushing for the mayor's plan, which would give all 4-year-olds access to universal pre-k.

Many parents said the program helps close the achievement gap. The plan would also tax the wealthiest city residents, bringing in roughly $530 million each year.
