President Obama’s speech at Rhode Island College today flew under the media radar for the most part, but the folks at Breitbart did catch an interesting statement from the president on the lack of public pre-school. “Sometimes, someone, usually Mom, leaves the workplace to stay home with the kids, which then leaves her earning a lower wage for the rest of her life as a result,” the president told his audience. “That’s not a choice we want Americans to make.”
As the president said, that’s not a choice “we” want Americans to make. After all, public pre-school is not only “good for families” but “good for the children,” he explained.
Any thoughts on the subject from you, dad?
