Universal preschool is a proposal that would use funding from the federal government to provide school to children before they reach Kindergarten. In the current U.S. public education system government funded school is guaranteed to all children from kindergarten to 12th grade. number of U.S. states use state tax revenue to fund part-time and full-time preschool for children between the ages of 3 and 5. Half of the states that offer pre-K programs limit enrollment to low-income children. Proponents that preschool is too expensive for most American families and according to The Chicago Child-Parent Center's Longitudinal Study children who attend preschool found on average that children make significant gains in cognitive, language and early math and reading skills. Opponents point to a 2005 study done by the RAND Corp. which showed “no significant impacts in education – in the short or long term.”
No, if a city wants a preschool or for the very young children, the city should pay for it or parents should have enough time to teach them simple things that they learn in preschool such as learning how to use a scissor or 1+1 or how to read. I was able to read at 2. That was because my mom helped me. My opinion is biased based on experience. In my preschool, we didn't read a lot. Or do other things.
Make it available for people who don't have very high income because the rich ussually tend to have their maids, nannas and nannys that can take care of their children while the lower or sometimes even middle class essential workers don't have this leisure.
If one can find a way to do so without an increase in costs for schooling for parents/teens, then it should come from the state-level, otherwise no, because then the schools will increase costs similar to how colleges did when they were given guaranteed funding.
