    Your tax money at work.

    This is a many fold problem.

    1st, most households now have both parents working to just get by.
    2nd, with both parents working, no one is home to watch the children.
    3rd, if 1 parent stays home and doesn't work, odds are they will receive food stamps, WIC and welfare due to lower income.

    So, how do we solve the problem of people relying on the government? Jobs.
    How do we allow parents to work? Provide preschool opportunities.

    The cost to the tax payer for preschool is less than 25% the cost of welfare and food stamps.

    Preschool also isn't a service that parents can use indefinitely as children age.

    So, it is better to support preschool from a business and government sense as this limits the use of government resources that the family will need to use as well as limiting the families dependency on the government for handouts into infinity.

    Constitutional fraud, waste, and abuse of education funds.

    The tax payers of Utah and SL County are not obligated to support day care for toddlers by government bureaucracy an its destricitve program is eliminated from our schools.

    Constitutional obligations for education begin at age 5 or 6 and day care is the responsibility of parents. Toddlers should not be taken from their parents and placed in the hands of government and parents should be outraged that the federal bureau of education is out to destroy a parent child bonding relationship crucial to child development and parental trust where bonding is traumatic influence over the minds of the innocent.

    I am tired of this government and Federal Bureau of Education who thinks they have regulatory powers over babies in the womb.
