The nation's Momma:
Children who don’t get a pre-kindergarten education, ideally from birth to age 5,
might fall behind and “may as well drop out” by third grade, Secretary
of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said on Wednesday at an
event to garner support for President Barack Obama’s $75-billion
proposal to increase pre-school enrollment across the country...Protein quoting CNS
As we've learned by now, the Statists never quit taking, so this isn't just some offhand inane remark.
Yes, it's inane.

The above is NOT an accurate quote of Sebelius. She says we have to guard against this happening and she says "you have to do early interventions so parents can be the best and first teacher. You have to have a way that whatever place a parent chooses for their child in an out-of-home placement has high quality." [emphasis added]
President Obama put out a "comprehensive plan" in his State of the Union speech, she said, "a birth-through-5 [plan], recognizing that you can't just start with 4-year-olds, but they're very important, you have to really look at infants and toddlers, you have to do early interventions so parents can be the best and first teacher. You have to have a way that whatever place a parent chooses for their child in an out-of-home placement has high quality."
Eat it, Jimbo.
All your kids are belong to us!
For someone who didn't get "comprehensive" education from birth to age 5 (and only had half-day K5 kindergarten...gasp!), I went on to get a Master's degree.
99.9% of the people I know have similar stories.
Oooh, a Master's degree. Just think, you could've gotten a PhD if your education had begun a couple years earlier.
