PER-STUDENT PRE-K SPENDING LOWEST IN DECADE

WASHINGTON (AP)— State funding for pre-kindergarten programs had its largest drop ever last year and states are now spending less per child than they did a decade ago, according to a report released Monday.

The report also found that more than a half million of those preschool students are in programs that don't even meet standards suggested by industry experts that would qualify for federal dollars.

Those findings — combined with Congress' reluctance to spend new dollars — complicate President Barack Obama's effort to expand pre-K programs across the country. While Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius continue to promote the president's proposal, researchers say existing programs are inadequate, and until their shortcomings are fixed there is little desire by lawmakers to get behind Obama's call for more preschool.

"The state of preschool was a state of emergency," said Steven Barnett, director of the National Institute for Early Education Research at Rutgers University, which produced the report.

Imagine that, people who's jobs depend on the early education fantasy lying about how effective it is (not at all) and how little money is being thrown at it. The state of Minnesota just fleeced the taxpayers out of $80 million more dollars for pre-school and all day kindergarten, an increase of 25%.

It is all about the Dependents with Government Jobs and building the Voter Rolls for the Peoples Demokrat Victims Party....."We only gots 80 million! the Injustice!

If it were "just", ZERO would be the "Funding" for educating children (Indoctrinating) before they are herded into Kindergarten to begin a 13 year journey of Mediocrity, Indoctrination, and A 13 year examination of their "Feelings" after being fed Revisionist History that is "sensitive" to the students "Cultural Experiences".

God save us from ourselves, and what we allow to be done to us by the "Least Among us",

spam (spæm)

1. to send unsolicited electronic mail or text messages simultaneously to a number of e-mail addresses or mobile phones

— n
2. unsolicited electronic mail or text messages sent in this way

[C20: from the repeated use of the word Spam in a popular sketch from the British television show Monty Python's Flying Circus, first broadcast in 1969]

I am sick of Wetards like Slewblomkin that toss out expressions like "Spamming" when the wetard has NO IDEA about the meaning of the word.

One could almost believe that the Posters that use words they do not understand are a bit stupid in their daily lives.

(I read that these Iddioots tend to use spell check as a weapon against the Big Kids. for retribution when their Iddiiocy is called out by another Poster.)
