If you like your preschool, you can keep it.

And the same thing goes for your kids.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

The fact of the matter is, there is no replacement for a child's parents at this early age and the continued insistence on preschool programs is nothing more than a sop to the left, both a means of giving more payola to the teachers' unions as well as a fig leaf to hide the fact that the dismal performance of many children from poor families has to do with the culture they're raised in and the failure of their parents, and precious little to do with whether they went to preschool or not.  This is as pretentious, and as false, as the claims the makers of the Little Einstein products made, and which Disney eventually retracted, along with offering refunds because of the false claims that the products would stimulate babies' minds.
