Another thing that should be noted about the damage PreK has done is to the local economy. It has caused many private, TAX PAYING, child cares to go out of business. It was so kind of the state to institute the 3 Star program on those agencies and then a year later create a socialist program for free child care that undermined the tax paying programs.

In order for a private facility to receive and maintain 3 Stars they had to spend more money on equipment and better trained caregivers to meet the standards.

PreKs are NOT REQUIRED to be evaluated by the 3 Star assessment program. Why? Because it's a sham program to pad the pockets of the Department of Education. Where's the published studies of children coming from private 3 Star programs vs the children in PreK? They are all tested when they arrive at kindergarten. There are no published studies because DOE would be embarassed by the scores. Children in private 3 Star programs do much better.

PreK is a complete fraud and nothing but socialism. People need to care for their own children or get up off their lazy behinds and get a job so they can afford quality child care!
