Obama Administration Declares Its Early Education Initiatives A Success by Lillian Mongeau was posted on September 19, 2016.
In her article she states,
“Citing the additional $6 billion additional dollars spent on early childhood programs between 2009 and 2016, the U.S. Department of Education issued a statement on September 15 laying out the administration’s record of expanding early childhood access.”
“Because of historic investments from the Obama Administration, states and cities, more children—particularly those who have been historically underserved—now have access to high-quality early learning,” U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King Jr., said in the Sept. 15 statement.
“The administration has increased spending in a variety of areas, including home visiting programs, Head Start, child care subsidies, and preschool for young children with disabilities.
“But we can’t stop there,” King said. Indeed, only 41 percent of 4-year-olds and 16 percent of 3-year-olds are enrolled in publicly funded preschool, which includes Head Start and state-funded programs, according to the National Institute for Early Education Research.”
Our country’s current system of education is failing our children miserably and instead of improving the system they are capturing our children at an even earlier age, making them complacent to their enslavement before they realize they are enslaved.
In order for children to have access to high-quality early learning, there must be high-quality early teaching and making 3 and 4 year old children succumb to the constraints of common core education is dastardly.
Truly relevant early childhood programs do not take the child out of the home away from the family but work with the entire family, teaching the older family members how to be positive role models for the younger ones.
Putting 3 and 4 year old children on a bus for a half hour or more before entering a huge building full of people and things unfamiliar to them, to then force them to sit quietly in a seat, walk neatly in rows, and speak only when spoken to, indoctrinating them to the acceptable “norm” while ignoring their gifts and talents, is simply another way of increasing the profits of the “hedgehogs” by insuring an ignorant population.
