    The federal government is ramping up its efforts to make preschool available to more children. Members of Congress, for example, have introduced the Strong Start for America’s Children Act to fund early education for 4-year-olds.

    1/16/09 - Mike Rose

From everything we hear, it’s to prepare the next generation for the economy, and that preparation is measured through scores on standardized tests. This has been the primary justification for education for a generation.But our children are more than economic beings...
