$10Bn for 4-Year-Old "Education": HRC

It's a start, right?

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Hillary Clinton yesterday proposed that the federal government provide states with up to $10 billion to ensure all 4-year-olds have pre-kindergarten education.

...Among the requirements of the Clinton plan, states would have to provide free preschool to low-income and limited-English families, hire teachers with bachelor's degrees and training in early-childhood development, ensure low child-to-teacher ratios and use age-appropriate curriculum, yet to be defined.

It's going to be "voluntary."

So, presidential candidate, and aspiring Reichsjugendfuhrer, Clinton is going to pick up where Baldur von Schirach left off? I wonder if we could send her off for a long vacation at Spandau as well.
