Krusty Konservative: Preschool for all?

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
(Guest column by Rep. Christopher Rants)
Preschool for all – sounds like a good concept, right? The Democrats have proposed legislation that they say offers the opportunity for all pre-kindergarten children to attend pre-school. Unfortunately, that's the rhetoric currently being offered by Democrats, when in reality what they are proposing is a bureaucratic nightmare filled with red tape and even more regulation. Here's why: Currently, private preschools are licensed under the DHS, and public preschools are pre-K programs that are offered by school districts. What Democrats are proposing is for kids who are watched by grandparents, friends and stay-at-home parents to have new requirements mandated upon them and administered through the Department of Ed.
