Payback for WEAC: State to Take Your Kid Earlier

This is pure crap.

The state would require 5-year-olds to attend school under a bill introduced earlier this week in the Legislature.

Two Racine lawmakers, Sen. John Lehman, D-Racine and Rep. Cory Mason, D-Racine, co-sponsored the bill that would require children to complete 5-year-old kindergarten as a prerequisite to being admitted to first grade in a public school, including a charter school, beginning in the 2011−12 school year.

K-garten is nice--but your kid won't miss anything if they aren't there--assuming you're actually being a parent.

There you go assuming again, Dad. If many parents would actually BE parents, it's likely there would be no need for sex ed and other programs like it. Maby then, they could teach little Johnny how to think, and do mathy without a calculator. It used to be expected. No more.
