    Wasn't head start a pioneering program to help low-income children get out of poverty? After forty five years, poverty has risen.

    Big difference between P-tech and Head Start. P-tech is largely private, and partners with LOCAL governments. Head Start was federal from the top to the bottom---thus unconstitutional. These kids may or may not actually get jobs at IBM, but they will have an Associate's Degree and hopefully this will inspire them to continue on and get a Bachelor's Degree. Science and math study are never wasted.

    In order for the broken education system in this country to get back on track, the private sector is going to have to step up. Raising taxes only gives more money to the inept and corrupt government, who have only failed our schools with that money.
