Misguided, and not making sense to Mommy either

http://blog.acton.org/archives/21356-call-for-universal-preschool-misguided.html

We're in a bit of a money crunch in Michigan.  That is to say, we haven't any.  Our roads are falling apart, our public schools are in debt (and performing poorly) and we are not friendly to businesses, especially to small businesses.

So what does our Board of Education want to do?  Begin Universal Headstart for all 3 and 4 year olds.

As the article above points out, the big flaw here is that IT DOESN'T WORK.  We're gonna throw a whole bunch of money at a problem that already has a better-more-cost-effective solution (make it easier for families to make sure Mom or Dad can be at home to raise the kids), money we don't have. 

Don't our kids deserve better?
