So BonesyBoy even you will admit that " Head Start " is a babysitter service at best. So if you will admit to that, why keep it in place. If you truely want to provide babysitting service to "the working poor" as you call them, then do so and cancel the extremely expensive head start program. Tax money would be better spent elsewhere. Preschool babysitting costs alot less per child than what is being spent on Head Start per child.

True! Babysitters are a lot cheaper than teachers.

I agree, ALL preschools (not just Head Start) are little more than babysitting services, necessary in today's dual-income world. I don't "admit to it" as if this unfortunate reality is my fault...

I don't have the authority to cancel the program. Amd for the .02 cents per year it costs me, I've got bigger fish to fry. At least it's freeing up the parent(s) to work and hopefully, one day, no longer qualify for any kind of public assistance.

If you eliminate Head Start, what will all the single moms and low income parents do when there's no one to watch their kids?

Their own Parents and Grandparents might be an option.

Most of them are already on the dole and probably not working anyway. They are likely staying home, drinking, smoking, watching the View, soap operas and game shows, doing drugs and having more babies they can't afford!

It is an inherited trait. As far back as I know every member of my family has worked for a living. I'm just carrying on the tradition.

Maybe one of the single moms could start babysitting for the others?

BonesyBoy your attitude towards the idea of the "Government being the be all and end all", provider of all of the wants and needs of the people, is the problem . It is not in the best interest of a free people , to rely on Government for thier daily needs.

If those were viable options, they wouldn't need Head Start.

They're already low income, that's been established. If they're not working, they don't qualify for subsidised daycare.

Actually, the sad truth is there are millions who need and use Head Start who aren't doing any of those things. But I'm sure it makes you feel better to believe that those are the reasons why people "on the dole" cannot completely support themselves.

If you stand any chance of solving this "problem" you're going to have to do it from the standpoint of reality.

there really are many good people who need this program. It's those that abuse the program who cause discussions like this. And, BTW, did you know that when my wife leaves the house without her phone it is my damn fault because I did not remind her of it?
