As previously posted here, Senator Hillary Clinton supports the concept of universal preschool.
Now comes word that Hillary, in essence, wants to "nationalize" private preschools.
Last Thursday she proposed a bill which would "give states $28 billion over five years to incorporate the nation's 120,000 preschools now run in firms, churches and storefronts into a government-run system."
Along these lines, Rush Limbaugh warned today that if Democrats gain control of both Congress and the Presidency, outlawing homeschooling will be on their agenda. I don't think that's hyperbole...it makes sense, as Democrats prize government control above all else. They also value "controlling" options such as throwing money at the status quo, even if it's mediocre, to more creative options with less governmental control -- such as school choice and vouchers. One has to wonder if Democrats are suddenly going to wake up to the existence of millions of homeschooling kids and want to bring them under government control.
After all, if kids aren't in government schools, they won't receive Senator Obama's "age appropriate" kindergarten sex education, among other things...
