    Didn't we just find out that the long term benefits of Head Start were zero? Typical of big government to think we just didn't spend enough on it last time.

    No to federal control of schools!

    No to state funded babysitting in the name of preschool!

    Save that money for those who are old enough to be ready for school, and use it to reduce class size!

    Nope, school funding should be decided on and funded by the states.

    NO. It didn't work for "Head Start" and it won't work for pre-K.
    What the Fed funds, it tries to micro-manage, which is exactly why our education system is so mixed up. "Affirmativer Action", "No child left behind" and teaching "Self Esteem" have not improved the educational posture of the U.S. vs the world. Many of our youth are being short changed by the stifling effects of Federal regulations. Much of our Universities have to provide courses to enable students to matriculate and are more likely to provide political indoctrination that a useful "life" education.

    These people can't even balance a budget, and you want them to take your children, almost from the womb, and teach them?
