Universal Pre-K Education? No thanks!
Here is a really great John Stossell 20/20 clip making the case against moves to institute universal pre-K education.
My biggest fear with attempts at universal pre-k education is that it seems like the more government wants us to hand over our kids’ education to them, the worse results we get. And then a circular effect occurs whereby the government that screwed up tells us that the problem can only be solved by giving them even more control over education. But if k-12 education is already abysmal enough to land us at #23 (behind Turkey) in the industrialized world, then why in the world would I want to trust them with pre-K?
Maybe after we universalize pre-k, they’ll ask us to hand over our kids to universal pre-pre-k, and then maybe post-high school. Maybe after that we will nationalize all colleges.
