Finally, Some Truth from President Obama

“Tens of thousands of parents will have to scramble to find childcare”

President Obama talking about Head Start.  Lets take a look at the mission statement:

“Head Start promotes school preparation by enhancing the social and cognitive development of children through the provision of educational, health, nutritional, social and other services.”

It refreshing to hear someone admit the truth, Head Start is nothing more than a tax payer funded day care center.  There is no study that shows these children are any better prepared once they reach the first grade.  If we are going to give tax payer funded daycare, then the very least we can do is define it correctly.  It isn’t a program to help the students, it is a program for parents to have free day care.
