A legislative proposal to overhaul North Carolina's pre-K system would completely privatize pre-K classrooms by the summer of 2013, as well as leave fewer families eligible for state tuition assistance.

The proposal is part of a draft report slated for debate and a potential vote Thursday at the statehouse in Raleigh. It was the result of several months' work by a Republican-controlled legislative committee reviewing the state's early childhood programs. Committee co-Chairwoman Rayne Brown, R-Davidson, said Friday that she's not sure whether the report as it is will turn into a formal bill for the legislature, and she called its release last week just the start of a longer process.
