    We have optional public school for 3 year olds here in my city. Not many parents take advantage of it. It is optional. It is a choice. Long live choice.keep the damn geds put of it.
    You know, I really think most Democrats don't want kids to have a damn bit of fun. They also are keen on destroying summer vacation and making kids go to school that whole time. INSANE!

    And I say this as a liberal. Look, school is important. But you can very easily get too much of a good thing.

    We don’t need federal preschool. Right now parents can pay for preschool and poor kids can go to headstart.

    But what if the parents don't indoctrinate them early enough? You gotta get em while they're young.

    It is less ideological for me, but I agree. This is one of the reasons I don't think prayer belongs in schools. I don't think governments should indoctrinate kids like that.

    For me the issue is more like: "Why have kids if you are going to outsource most of the parenting?"

    Maybe we should just cancel public education entirely. People who think their kids need an education could buy it, or do it themselves. Surely part of parenting is educating one's kids. Some other countries do it that way. And as someone with no kids surely it would save me some money. And save everyone from that evil evil government indoctrination.

    I think that would be an over-reaction, although I'm all in favor of getting the Federal government out of our local school districts. The indoctrination begins in primary schools but really hits it's stride on the college level. It will be interesting to see how the Oberlin College $44M judgement in compensatory and punitive damages will influence other schools, who are most certainly sitting up and taking notice of the future cost of unrestrained SJW advocacy.
