Doylet Flush

Gotta hand it to Jimbo, who's handing it to his pals in "education."

...yesterday [January 13] the Obama administration released the long-overdue first grade evaluation of the federal Head Start program. As expected, the results show that the $7 billion per year program provides little benefit to children – and great expense to taxpayers.


Gov. Jim Doyle announced that nine Wisconsin Head Start Programs will receive $7.9 million in federal stimulus funds. The money will allow hundreds of Wisconsin children to enroll in Early Head Start programs, which provides early childhood education services.

"I am very excited about the opportunities these new resources will create. Early Head Start programs are central to our efforts to support families and help children thrive," Doyle said. "These programs unlock the potential in young children, giving them the opportunity to grow and shine at an early age."

No, they don't, Jimbo. All those programs 'unlock' is WEAC votes.
