"If you think education is expensive, wait until you see how much ignorance costs in the 21st century. If we don’t make this investment, we’ll put our kids, our workers, and our country at a competitive disadvantage for decades. So we must begin in the earliest years. That’s why I’ll keep pushing to make high-quality preschool available to every four year-old in America – not just because we know it works for our kids, but because it provides a vital support system for working parents."

Oh you mean free daycare?

We know it works? I guess he didn't read the report. What a shock. Looks like it's cost us 150 billion so far and the great leader wants to throw more money into the trashcan.

"Unfortunately, a new (long overdue) report published by the Department of Health and Human found that the $150 billion that taxpayers have “invested” in Head Start since 1965 is yielding zero lasting benefits for participating children. According to the Head Start Impact Study: “the benefits of access to Head Start at age four are largely absent by 1st grade for the program population as a whole.” The Heritage Foundation reviews the findings of the new evaluation in a forthcoming Backgrounder report concluding: “Head Start has little to no effect on cognitive, socio-emotional, health, and parenting outcomes of children participating in the program.”

Not everything in life is about the money. Also, seriously? A three and a half year old link?

LOL. Go tell that to folks who have poured 150 billion into a program that has returned well lets see here........“the benefits of access to Head Start at age four are largely absent by 1st grade for the program population as a whole.”

Of course it's not about the money because the government is wasting OUR money. They don't care.

Investing in prekindergarten is smart and a good investment.

This coming from the President who's reaping the ignorance of Americans every day, as the guy before him did. People don't care what our foreign policy is because American Idol is on!

Our public education system does suck though. It's as if we want to be a third world country.

Richard Haass, our chief foreign policy adviser was on The Daily Show last night. Every time he was asked a question about why we have so much foreign influence, and pour so much money into other parts of the world when we have so many problems to fix at home, he would go off into something about policing the world, with no excuses made. He seemed completely oblivious to the notion that it isn't our place to play Daddy around the globe. The only question to him was to what extent, and in what way we would orchestrate the time-out corner, and distribute cookies.

Furthermore, parents can get back to work. Maybe KUchief wants them home collecting welfare and food stamps.

We are pouring so much money in other parts of the world so that oil is traded in US dollars so we can then print it out of thin air and pour it all over the world.

That is odd I have three kids and didn't have to quit work. How can that be? How can folks actually manage that without stealing money from others to provide for them? Can you explain that? It is quite mind boggling to some I'm sure.
