The Iowa Preschool Battle
Transcript of The Iowa Preschool Battle
-Governor Terry Branstad "Parents ought to have skin in the game..." According to the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier, Republicans deny wanting to eliminate the program entirely, but state that the current program is far too expensive. part 2 part 3 part 1 http://wcfcourier.com/news/local/article_16672810-3132-11e0-af12-001cc4c002e0.html are the pros and cons? Some say the proposed program will restrict access: http://www.mccoyforsenate.com/newsroom/latest-news/item/strong-support-for-statewide-preschool.html Still others believe the requirement for certified teachers should be maintained. Some evidence suggests this is not necessarily a benefit: http://www.cato.org/pressroom.php?display=news&id=157 Parents are often split on the issue as well. Many parents of preschool children believe it helps them with social skills, general behavior, and prepares them to learn. On the other hand some believe that pre-school confuses children with inconsistent discipline (children have to live by two sets of rules), increased aggression and sadness when the child has to spend a day away from the family, damaging child-parent bond. Benefits of pre-school dissapear by the 3rd grade. http://blogs.desmoinesregister.com/dmr/index.php/2010/12/15/preschool-doesnt-help-iowa-children-republican-legislative-leader-says/ The majority of children who attend preschool, enter kindergarten with better learning skills, social skills, used to sharing, and can be separated from mom. Predictions are mixed on whether the Governor's proposal adopted. Tuesday, March 10th, the Iowa House passed the bill on a 55 to 45 vote.
