What's Wrong with This Picture??

Why is this woman protesting the creation of new options for parents – as some of those parents look on – when she most likely doesn’t live in a bad school zone and clearly doesn’t have a clue as to the plight of people who do?

Crusading for universal pre-school is all fine and dandy, but who works in her ideal universally-funded pre-school and where do those pre-schoolers attend school as they age? These are the issues with which most parents are concerned. Is the quality of staff guiding our children first rate? Are they accountable for performance? Are they well educated? Will the children enter schools that are personalized and aware that if they don’t succeed in doing do they can loose the funding the students represent?

Get with the real picture. Put down your sign and visit a few schools. Or not.
