Obama wants to make sure to get kids into government schools sooner for further indoctrination.

On Tuesday, President Barack Obama pushed for at least $750 million in targeted funds in his $3.9 trillion 2015 budget to lay the foundation for universal preschool programs. Obama spoke at a D.C. elementary school that participates in a pre-kindergarten program.
“Research shows that one of the best investments we can make in a child’s life is high-quality early education,” Obama wrote in his introductory budget message about his desire to expand preschool to all four-year olds. “I am again calling on the Congress to make high-quality preschool available to every four-year-old child.”
Questions have been raised, though, about how those taxpayer funds would be spent and what type of nationalized curriculum would be implemented for universal Pre-K programs, which many children may not even attend.
Obama said he hoped that his budget, by targeting $750 million for Pre-K programs, would lay a “stronger foundation for Preschool for All,” an initiative he launched in last year’s State of the Union address. Liberal Democrats – like New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro – have also been enthusiasts for Pre-K programs.
