HOPE for College Only
October 4th, 2012

I am against Pre-K funding from Hope. And not because I hate kiddies.

The only true way to determine the return on investment on Pre-K is to find a direct correlation to success through the rest of the student’s education process. Then, to show that this measurable success was due to Pre-K and would not be achieved had these same students started in Kindergarten.

IT CAN’T BE DONE!!!!

When you then consider all of the external influences that can affect a student during the 13 years following Pre-K (good school, good teachers, stable home life, parent marital status, economic influences, accidents, illness, drug addition, prescription drug addition, climate change, war in Iraq, ok – you get the message), there is NO EVIDENCE that shows that Pre-K money is well spent.

Pre-K is a politicians dream. They constantly speak on it and try to use it to show they are “for the kids”. Until these same kids get a little older and less cute, then these same politicians push for social programs like alternative schools, adult charges for teen offenders and birth control for teens (again, I ramble!).

HOPE should go to college students only. Of course, waste and other issues must be addressed in the system. But HOPE money is a great incentive to continued academic effort. Spend the money to educate the high school grads that achieve the only goal that all children are given that reach school age. It is a great reward for hard work and will pay off in a more educated work force – which can easily be measured, assuming there are jobs created by the “trickle-down-theory-loving-CEOs-of-cash-rich-corporations-that-won’t-hire-anyone-as-long-as-Obama-is-president-which-means-they-don’t-like-the-trickle-down-theory”. But I digress….
