Headstart was for teaching basic skills to pre-schoolers. that their parents failed to do. Now it has been expanded thru 5 th grade in true bureacrat lunacy. Now it is not even being run by the school system. Does that tell you something ?The gov. just wants to get hold of them sooner, to brainwash them into the Gov. way of thinking. Headstart was proven not to work, But like all Gov. programs, they go on forever.

What’s the real message behind Barack Obama’s call in his State of the Union speech for taxpayer-funded “universal” preschool and his trip to a Georgia preschool last Thursday for photo ops?

It’s that the government wants to get its hands on our children even earlier.

From the time children are five or six years old up through their senior year, government schools run by leftwing teachers unions have them at least seven hours a day, five days a week during most of the year.

They use that time to teach them just enough English and math to pass standardized...
