Pre-K for all

And the Governor is quoted in the Oak Ridger Friday morning:

Bredesen said Lana Seviers, his state education commissioner, a Clinton resident and former Oak Ridge educator, is doing a "great, great job." He said he wanted to spend the rest of his term working on issues such as providing pre-kindergarten classes to anyone who wants his or her child to have the opportunity. [emphasis added]

It's not about just those from families that won't or cannot provide good parenting. Parents across the state are going to wonder why they're paying for daycare when the state will provide it free. And a lot of more intimate and loving places will be put out of business. I'm not sure the children will really be better off. But there is big money in education--whether you do it well or not.
