    LOL.....whatever dude, you left a lot out...and you still have not made a point against head start.

    See, this is why I don't have to worry about what I talk about online. I don't have to remember what I told somebody because I tell the truth and the truth is always the same. And I don't know if there have been changes to unemployment and food stamp programs since then, it was 4 years ago if I remember correctly.
    you don't have to remember....if you remember correctly.

    OK!

    The current crop of kids have all kinds of programs, and still the average High School student of today is ignorant.

    There was a time when the parents (or more likely mom), actually taught the kids a good bit of the basic stuff that Kindergarden and pre-school 'teach' them now. You know, it use to be what they call 'parental responsibility.' Of course that R word is a horrible thing nowadays, and why bother when you can have someone else do it for you.

    I never went either, I was borderline age-wise and the school booted me up into first grade after the first couple of days of kindergarten.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Nothing he typed out should have led anyone to the conclusion you came up with. Nothing.

    "many people" have every right in the world to think that government should get out of the school business. It's their tax dollars funding the schools too.

    The chief question at the bottom of all of this is: "Does this mean that Head will be here in the morning now?" Nothing pejorative here. Just askin...

    Kindergarten, for me, was 1/2 a day - it was to introduce the idea of an organized school day to young children so when they started to attend full time, they would adjust easier. We had occasional activities with building blocks to learn how to count and did things involving letters and numbers to become familiar with them. Mainly, it was social, follow the rules, work together, listen to the teacher. (that was almost 30 years ago)

    Today - Kindergartners learn how to:
    Write their name.
    Spell small words.
    Add.
    Read.
    Use a computer...etc
    They'll even do homework and take tests.

    In fact - my kids were doing that in Pre-school (not Head Start, though. Even though it's all the same. We paid for ours, Head Start covers their cost)

    Problems: Pre-school actually does boost children ahead, but soon after, education levels out and it doesn't necessarily ensure their quality of education will continue to be above. It's just becoming early kindergarten. . .and our daughter complained in K that she was just repeating everything she already knew, because a lot of students in K didn't go to Pre-school, so they're worlds apart, ability wise.

    about 8 years ago, on a different forum, a K teacher complain that many students can't 'write their name, read their name, use scissors, recognize half of the letters in the alphabet, recognize all the colors and numbers' - and thus, they weren't ready for K, and, it just made teaching K that much more difficult.

    a mother responded to her - shocked - saying 'I send my kid to K so you can teach her all of that, I didn't know I was expected to teach my kid those basics beforehand'

    See - things have changed quite a lot.
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.
