Obama Evaluating Early Childhood Education Push In Second Term: via HuffPost

Obama Evaluating Early Childhood Education Push In Second Term: via HuffPost http://huff.to/1041sOW I think my early childhood education consisted mostly of being left alone with lots of lego and tinker toys. I’ve seen what happens with the Montessori end of the business- it always comes up in connection with psycho over-controlling parents divorcing. I’m sceptical of the economic benefit claims. If we give somebody a competitive advantage early, does that create something economically or are we just not factoring in that everybody else gets pushed down? Given anti-empirical trends in science this needs to be looked at carefully.
