I posted this comment:

I firmly believe we should experiment with publicly-funded pre-school over the next few years. Indeed, I suggest we have publicly funded day care for childern in the 1-4 year old range as well. Four years from now, we can evaluate these programs and end them if they turn out to be too burdensome for taxpayers. Full disclosure: I'm the parent of a 10 month old, and day care is costing us $1400/month for three 8-hour days per week of care.

I was being facetious, of course. My point was that I think this proposal is being promoted not just for the supposed benefits of early education. What parent doesn't want "free" child care?
