There is no sense in having 4 year-old children staying at home with their mothers when the mothers should have jobs and be paying taxes to the US gov.

That is what it is all about.

You are a slave for ObaMao. He could care less about you or your children.

I'm tired of paying for babysitters. Whatever happened to if you have rich parents you are likely to have more and better stuff. Of course the rich people will send their kids away to camps and preschools to get rid of them and in the process they get a jump start on the poor kids who have to learn at home.

How about letting kids be kids? The idea that sending a 4 year old to preschool is going to make him a brain surgeon is ludicrous.

Every moment a 4 year old is awake is a learning experience.

If we are ever going to break this welfare dependency that lorexxx keeps harping on we need to have programs for this young kids to get all the breaks they can get to advance their knowledge and break this chain and reduce the gov't expenditure on the welfare programs in this country in the future.

It's also called taking away the play station and the video games. Teach the kids to be creative verses destructive. Also it's called having parents involed with the kids and not just let them just run wild. It all comes back to having a loving home raise kids that grow up and become our future leaders. How about takin most of the government out of the schools and put God back in. Now some of you go ahead and disagree with that

Teaching a work etic I know is foreign to you, but a work ethic is a good thing. It seems that the libs are the ones who want the governement to provide cradle to grave care. It is the conservatives who want kids to be free to play and explore and develop their imagination without 24/7 adult supervison.

"Most families need two income earners just to make ends meat."

That ain't necessarily so, but it is something stated by both parties to validate spending for more programs to "help" the earners.

Appears that all the "poor" parents need to send their kids to H4C's Child Care Center for Conservative Programing. This will insure the parent will work and be independent of Govt. since his services would be as free as his speech is.

My oh my...there's that self-congratulatory tone again.

Educated doesn't always mean smart.

When I sent my children to an early learning center, when I was working, I paid for it. Why this government expects us to cover everything for the people who can't find a job or won't find a job is just insane. Alot of people play this government's system everyday. From food stamps to housing to unemployment to workers comp. They know how to play it perfectly.

And to do 1st grade to graduation, I should have sent them to a private school. Public schooling really shoves their Liberal agenda's down those kids throats.

Proving what, Venitas? I paid my taxes for public schools. And they all got their educations. And one sentence at a time? Snarky aren't you? Pay your taxes, you should still be able to pick up your checks.

The topic was pre-school for 4 y/o, veratis. 4 years old. I was staying on topic. I doubt very much the schooling of 4 year olds will reduce violence.

Maybe lorexxx and h4c would rather have the 4yr olds in a milatary school!

No WA, that would be you and your party. They believe that kids should be kids and free to play, create, and devise their own games without constantly being herded around by adults.

Veritas, have you been counting your disagrees? Or speculating perhaps why you have them?

Topic: does America need universal preschool for all 4-year-olds?

(Notice the words "universal" and "all" please.)

Short answer: no.

It is interesting how many lefties are fascinated with the subject of multiple personalities, as they continue bringing it up.
