If the world was a wonderful place and moms got to stay home and take care of there children then there would be no reason to have Pre-k programs. These are not the day's of "Leave it to Beaver" or "Andy Griffith". Aunt Bea doesn't live in every household. Mom's work!
I am raising four children that I have legal guardianship of. I cannot quit work to stay at home with the children because there is no funding to help a relative caregiver.
Three of the children went to head-start,one did not. He went straight into Kindergarten not knowing his Alphabet,how to write his name,obey the teacher or anything else that is expected. He had a very difficult time.The other three have done very well. I couldn't be happier with what my children and I have experienced with the program.
So all you rich people that want to stop this program need to come down off your "high horse". Look around,not everyone can afford to stay home,if they did you would just be here next week calling them lazy because they don't work! So without this program you can expect to have to pay out twice as much for stay at home moms.
