“You don't fix poverty with preschool, which is the elephant in the room Obama won't talk about.”

“Pre-school is not the answer to our eduction problems. Finland's school system, the best on earth, doesn't bring kids into school until they're seven years old, and doesn't test them till they're thirteen.”

“Perhaps our society is different from Finland. One size doesn't fit all.”

Lesann on Feb 13, 2013 at 07:15:44

“Research also shows that families and communities benefit as well when children participate in quality preschool programs. Here's a snapshot of what we know:

The brain develops rapidly during the first five years and quality preschool programs can have a profound impact during this time.

Children who attend a quality preschool do better in elementary school and beyond, and have more success in reading and math.

As they grow, children who attended preschool are more likely to graduate from high school and find good jobs, and less likely to be involved in crime.

Preschool saves taxpayers money. Investing in preschool programs benefits society in the long-term in the form of reduced crime costs, welfare dependency and economic losses.

“Yes they do actually. Most kids got to what is called TARHA, which is equivalent to a Pre-school.”

“Fat chance I would put my preschool children in the hands of public school teachers.”

“BS flag! They have state provided preschool that leads to kindergarten at 6 and compensatory school at seven. All of their teachers are master degrees and well paid and respected.”

“But Finland doesn't have the poverty we have or the cultural divisions we have -- the cultures are quite different.”

“I can't think of an iphone release that didn't have a minor problem. Remember the iphone 4 lost signal when you touched the bezel? if I had the cash, I'd be gobbling up apple stocks.”

“The signal issue was easily solvable by consumers holding the iPhone differently.  The map problem is serious if you happen to live in the vast number of regions where Apple data are completely messed up.

“American Job Act. Presented to Congress Sept. 12, 2011. The announcement, given to an unprecedented Joint Session of Congress, was broadcast live on prime-time on all the major broadcast networks and cable news outlets.

Now, if you ask me, it was not what we needed. We needed another National Recovery Act.

Still, there is your major announcement on a jobs program.”

“No, a paleontologist put the wrong skull on a body. Unless dinosaurs knew how to do head transplants, brontosaurus never existed.”

DocJoseph on Dec 10, 2012 at 11:37:02

“I read the article and know about the mistake, but, as neuromantic said, it's a question of nomenclature, not existence. When the "right head" was on the body, it didn't mean that the large dinosaur didn't exist.

Aptosaurus, brontosaurus, you say tomato, I say carrot.”

neuromantic on Dec 10, 2012 at 11:03:09

“It was the earlier apatosaurus that had the wrong head. The later, complete brontosaurus was OK--but the name apatosaurus was in the literature first, so it is "official," even thought it was a sloppy reconstruction using bones that didn't go together. Would be more accurate to say the original apatosaurus never existed.”

“The Bush research team is still looking for Noah's ark.”

Crisdean Wulver on Dec 9, 2012 at 10:34:49

“If we convert cubits to feet, Noah's ark would have had to be 425 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet tall. So the most unbelievable part of the tory to me is not how all the animals would fit but how a family of sic men could build such a massive structure. And even if they could build it, it would break apart unless it was designed well. Can you imagine the size the beams would have to be? Cutting down trees, turning it into lumber, hewing the parts into interlocking shapes, fitting them into place, hauling them up to where they're needed. There's no way six men could complete a project like that in their lifetime.”
