Seeing how bad the US education system is I think you should be cheering for this.
It is the most important time for a child's learning and it may help people who can not afford it send their child to get it.
The kids are all our future and If they get educated without financial worries on the parents it will be better in the long run.
Education, Education, Education. Most important thing in the world.
it was not my intention to disagree with children in daycare, but the UNFAIR
taxation they want to put in place to pay for it. IF they want to
provide daycare then by all means they should try to do so, but with a FAIR
method of paying for it. putting the burden on only a portion of
they population that may not even have kids that could take advantage of it is not fair at all. hence why i made the comment about taxing diapers.
heck they could also tax those who would not be covered by this "free daycare", and baby products of all types, which would certainly be a fairer
way to tax for it. at least in that case people who would be using the service would be paying for it. other than that just like for elementary and
high school funding it really should come out of income-taxes at least that is a much fairer way of it than to add yet more tax to a product that is
not only already EXTREMELY HIGHLY TAXED as it is, but a product only some people use, that has absolutely NOTHING whatsoever to do with education. as
someone has mentioned a dwindling number of people which would mean building up the tax all the time just to stay at a constant rate. seriously WHY
SHOULD smokers be the ones responsible for paying for this it has nothing at all to do with smoking? how about instead of smokers it was a tax on
"diet products"? things like diet soda, weight watchers type meals, sugar substitutes, meal replacement drinks, and anything else related to trying
to loose weight. would THAT be fair?
as for "Whats wrong with getting kids in pre school?".in my opinion kids would be far better off at home with a parent, or even another relative
then be put into preschool. i have known many people who have worked in these places (most of them good people who love kids), they don't normally
teach much of anything that can't be as easily learned at home. in the end they are generally just places to babysit kids so the parents can work or
do whatever without having to deal with their kids. sadly a lot of people who use these places actually spend little time with their children at all,
dropping them off before 7 am and picking them up after 6 pm. basically for 5 days of the week picking the kids up feeding them dinner and putting
them to bed to wake them up the next day to take back yet again. this is one of the things i believe has been causing a lot of the issues in currant
it would actually be far better for the children to instead of wanting to provide preschool, to instead work on getting people payed enough so that
like in years gone by people could afford to live on ONE WAGE. which would let young children be raised not by impersonal institutional care but by
i just loved this "Seeing how bad the US education system is I think you should be cheering for this.". now why would having preschool make a
difference? do you honestly think that it would not be more of the same? that "free preschool" will somehow magically fix it?
