Is preschool training really necessary? There is an "education"
industry and it is to their interest to promote education for children prior to
kindergarten. There are some who feel a child should not go to school until age
6. I hope legislators will think about this seriously before spending hundreds
of millions on perhaps unnecessary programs. Israel rates about 39th in
education yet produces for its size far more innovative things than any other
country. It may be that this preschool education would impair creative thinking?
You are kidding, right? First I don't think they are talking about
"hundreds of millions". I saw the number 3. Second, "impair
creative thinking"? I think that is a stretch as well. The quality
programs, I have seen are all about creativity, socializing and interaction. Regarding SB118, I have said it before - I can think of no bigger
hypocrisy than hearing the outcry from the "conservative" right on the
SB118 issue. It is our right to have as many children as we want - as long as we
can take care of them (food, shelter, education)ourselves. To whine about the
removal of tax exemptions for more than two children is simply shirking
one's responsibility. Really, it is the ultimate in socialism.
Could preschool, education funding bills mean free babysitting service?
Pre-school=mother reading to her child. Period!Just that simple, an
@worf,Yes, I get your point, a woman's place is in the home (your
point not mine). I'm curious, do you really not understand, or are you
simply ignoring the fact that many mothers have to work in order to make ends
meet. In other words, it isn't a choice.
@D4inSLC:Why do people have children they can't afford to
raise? Is it fair having others pay for their decision making? Surely a mom can find a few minutes reading to their child.
Worf, I do agree with you on people having children they cant afford - hence my
support of SB 118. I'm also painfully aware of circumstances that prevent
a single mother from reading to her children during the morning hours, when
these preschool programs take place
worf,Parents should be responsible, they often times are not, so
what do we do? Should we allow the goods to suffer and create generations of
poverty or should we try and help some of these kids find a better life. What
is the worth of one child?
@Fred44: We actually pay benefits for the results of permissiveness,
while broadcasting more of it on television, and at theaters. Now, morals have
a blurred definition with no proper example from our political leadership.So what can we do?Vote in honorable leaders with morals,
adults setting an honorable example, and find a way to teach rightous
principles to our youth.The goods are already suffering, and
creating a generation of poverty.We must change things
worf,Your suggestions are great and I am all for them, but you
didn't address the issue of today right now, do we just ignore these
children whose parents are irresponsible and let them become the next generation
stuck in poverty or do we something to try and help them escape? If
we try to help them it costs money, if we ignore them it costs even more money.
Again what is the worth of a child?By the way typo on my previous
post goods should have been kids.
