Obama wants your 4-year-olds


Recommended Posts

The libs are gonna love this:

 

Obama argued that in addition to preparing 4-year-olds for the global economy, sending them to public preschool would also be a form of government-funded babysitting for parents.

 

“Not only that, it could save hard-working families thousands of dollars each year in child care costs,” said Obama. “This is an investment we need to make, and it is fully paid for in this Budget by imposing a new tax on every pack of cigarettes sold.’

 

In 2011, according to the CDC, 40.7 percent of the babies born in the United States were born to unmarried women.

The sooner to indoctrinate them my dear. Four year olds are supposed to worship Mommy and Daddy and PLAY you socialist bastich.

 

Mr. Obama: I want you and your people near my children as much as I want a child molester near my children. I will decide how my children are raised, not you.

 

 

Can you imagine the curriculum?

Humanities: Stomp pictures of Jesus, 101.
Science: Conservatives cause Warming 101
History: Hell, we were all slaves! 101
Psych: You're Gov"t property, not Mom & Dad's 101
...whats you say Willis, its not free?

And we wonder why kids are so jacked up now.

 

 

Scratch deep enough on most parents and you'll find people glad that school exists because it gives their kids somewhere to be, free of charge, while they work.  If that wasn't the case most kids would be in private schools, but few parents can afford that luxury.

More can than you realize, but they choose to spend their money on other things.

I think the government needs to focus more on making the school systems we already have better, instead of longer. I understand that this is perhaps more of a child care issue than an educational one, but I still stand by my point. If this is strictly an issue of child care, then why don't we just fund all the daycare centers we already have available, instead of funding an entirely new program? I don't see the extra year of "school" as any sort of benefit educationally, so just go with what you have.

Every time the discussion of test scores and schools in the US vs. the rest of the world comes up obviously the overall number is what is looked at but if you look at the breakdown by income level, area and demographic some "groups" are doing pretty well.  I think many people on here can agree with the fact that money won't fix certain problems when it comes to education.  Adding another year of school isn't going to fix what kids don't get at home - parents that take an interest and get involved in their kids education.

A four-year-old should not have to worry about being prepared for the global economy.

 

This is socialist bullcrap.

 

 

 

Nothing wrong with getting a head start on education. The people that commented from your link probably could have used it.

The biggest load of bullcrap is your assertion that kids are somehow worrying about a global economy in any scenario in which they are attending pre-school at the age of four.

 

Moving on from that, what actually should be up for debate is what is focused on in these years of pre-school, when pre-school should be taking place age wise, the structure of our educational system and what should be taught (and when).
