When it comes to oil, the US will in a few years time be one of the biggest exporters of oil. And no, that won't mean the US achieved energy independence, it all goes on the global market and gets sold accordingly. So we still have an interest in alternatives to fossil fuels. And that is both for national security and economic as well. If we take the lead, then it will pay dividends down the road.

I'm not going to defend this project off hand, just not enough information on it for me to judge at this point. Is there some basic research that could assist future research or projects? Maybe, SDSU isn't stating it's case strongly and I suspect a pol of wanting to score points.

Not much I can add here to this. But then I view the issues with the US healthcare system, particularly costs as a national security and economic risk. And that's based on what it costs here versus in other select countries.

Been meaning to reply back, but went through a little bit more of the lit on pre-k. I'll agree with you there that a one-size fits all program may not be the most effective use of resources. A voucher system like you mentioned, would be a good choice with keeping additoinal government/bueacratic growth to a minimum. I've seen a little on what needs to happen after that, but that gets into other things ,like smaller classes, one-on-one time , involved parents and recess.

Drew, Thanks for the response. Since you've delved into the research, has any study pointed to what needs to be done extend the effect of a pre-k program?

The writer of the editorial didn't do enough research. Vandy and the Peabody Research Institute state otherwise on the effectiveness of pre-k programs.
