Calling ALL Teachers and Parents!!!! Should We Implement Universal Preschool?

Currently, I am studying education. I am curious to know what your thoughts are about this topic – especially parents and teachers!
In one of my classes we have been discussing the importance of schooling and various school systems across the world. For example, in Mexico, children attend preschool from 3 to 5 years of age. The third year of preschool at the age of five, is equivalent to our kindergarten. There, students are able to interact socially with others of the same age, and also build a solid foundation for grade school.

In conjunction, we have also been discussing the roles of parents and how this has changed dramatically over the past 50-100 years! Women’s roles have also shifted in being accepted into many powerful positions in their careers. Further, with our economy, The need for two incomes, or two working parents is more of a necessity now. Thus, the need for childcare or, better yet, the cost of childcare is a rising concern!

On the flip side, what would this mean for our taxes? Would it affect smaller day care institutions? Does that mean less flexibility in the type of pre-school a child can attend?

I am interested to know if you are or are not in favor of a universal preschool? I would also like to know your reasons and thoughts! Please and thank you. 🙂

    • Why do you think it should be? Would you want there to be standards like that of Kindergarden?

      • Universal preschool strengthens all communities across all economic stratus. When children are given solid foundations, we as a society benefit. Families must have dual incomes to survive. If our economy can not support single incomes than we must absolutely move in this direction but because our political parties are at such odds, I’m doubtful as nation our conflicts have been puppeteered by our politicians. There is bigger money in jails therefore universal preschool will sadly become a topic put on the back burner.
