  •  So, they got off relatively lightly . . .. (0+ / 0-)

    (not that it's not an outrage either way)

    •  Everyone has the same percentage (0+ / 0-)

      across the board, federally.

      Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!

    •  The state programs also saw cuts (0+ / 0-)

      so overall, there are already fewer preschool slots (at any price point, actually) than there were pre-recession, pre-sequester.

      In 12 years, when these kids are in high school, we'll be blaming the high school teachers for their poor test scores.

      •  Not likely, by then all teachers (0+ / 0-)

        will likely either be of the TFA variety or working for charter schools.

        Either way, any bad grades that come out will actually never come out but will instead be covered up someplace along the way.

        Voila, problem solved! American education is fixed, yah!!

        •  It's not American education that's broken (0+ / 0-)

          it's American communities that are broken. 25% of kids living below the poverty line... I can't understand how we accept that.
