Obama Makes Universal Pre- School State Of The Union Pitch, Setting Up More Windy City Pension Fraud

February 14, 2013

Two days after his State of the Union pledge to guarantee high quality preschool for every 4-year-old in the U.S., President Barack Obama takes his pitch on the road on Thursday to an Atlanta suburb where he will deliver a speech on the issue at a local recreation center.

Obama cast his preschool plan as a way to bring low-income and minority children up to speed with higher-income children—a move he says would save taxpayer money and give those children greater opportunity to succeed over their lifetimes. “Every dollar we invest in high-quality early childhood education can save more than seven dollars later on by boosting graduation rates, reducing teen pregnancy, even reducing violent crime,”

Obama pushes for more universal pre-school  spending while 73% of every cent spent on Chicago education goes to teacher pensions and health care.
