President Obama would have the government raise your children by nationalizing government education from birth through adulthood. His new preschool education plan is set to accommodate every preschool child in the nation, not only the needy. As an aside, Obama also wants government workers to go door-to-door offering entitlements such as food stamps. [CaffeinatedThoughts]
Eric Holder said that it is not illegal to ban homeschooling. This administration is serious about taking your children and training them before you have much of an opportunity.
Parents will be ready-willing-and-able because both parents generally work and the cost of child care is high.
President Obama hopes to mandate preschools for every pre-school child in America at a cost of $10,000 federal taxpayer dollars added to what the states donate per child.
All this while we are borrowing from Chinese Communists to whom we already owe $1.2 trillion dollars. I mustn’t forget that we are printing funny money at the same time, as Bernanke buys up bad assets and turns them into cash that is far above their value.
Obama declared his intentions during his SOTU. Ever the campaigner, he went out two days later and was filmed playing blocks with children in a preschool. Unlike in the case of Benghazi, he was Johnny-on-the-spot.
If only that were the end of it. He plans to provide public preschool for any 4-year-old whose family income is 200% or less than the federal poverty level (it’s currently 130%) at the expense of already strapped states and the federal government.
It doesn’t stop there. He wants to taxpayer money in the form of grants to serve children from 0 – 3 years. A perfect nanny state with government in charge of your children from birth.
I am an educator and all the legitimate research shows that this type of education, exception being the handicapped, only helps the child for the first year or two and then the other children catch up. It is a temporary boost. Headstart has had zero success.
Obama’s idea is appealing to working parents and to parents who would like a babysitter for their child from birth. If the Republicans stop it, which they must since we don’t have the money, President Obama can then demonize them as he launches his offensive to take back the House in 2014.
There is more! The president wants to hire government workers to go into homes and hand out food stamps, welfare and whatever else they can think to give away.
We are becoming a full-blown nanny socialist state.
