    WE shouldn't. Parents should. It has nothing to do with me.

    The human brain gives us the ability to override biological drives. It's too bad so many people don't use their brains.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Is there some kind of reason that preschool is a necessity? God forbid they just stay at home one more year.

    All these are critiques of the program itself, not preschool in general. This is basically saying, because a particular form of education doesn't work, kids shouldn't go to school.

    Preschool =/= Headstart.

    I don't have a problem with preschool, plenty of people learned to read in preschool giving them an advantage, but the particular program of Headstart doesn't work.

    I'm not gonna take those studies at face value until I consider the counterevidence. But even if they pan out, then we should reform, not abolish, Head Start. This sequestration is, yet again, ineffective and stupid.
