Our educational system has clearly become a system of indoctrination. Leaders of the teachers unions have openly stated that schools should teach the Marxist system and explain the failure of the capitalist system. These people have proclaimed the idea of indoctrinating our children in Marxism. Our students are not taught civics but are taught what the Marxist/Progressives determine to be politically correct. Common Core is a huge step in that direction. The Department of Education and the leaders of the teachers unions have destroyed our educational system.
Now this same group is advocating that they have control of the child virtually from birth. They are proclaiming what they call the advantages of the federal government controlling all child care.
This is the reasoning and points on how these Marxist/Progressives are proceeding. This is very dangerous to the United States remaining a free and unlimited opportunity society. This is what Hilary Clinton meant when she said "It takes a village to raise a child."
This report explores how shifting economic and social trends are affecting infants and toddlers. It also makes a case for why policymakers should respond to these trends by increasing investments in this age group. The current approach to service delivery for young children is fragmented and under-resourced. Growing poverty and diversity demands another look at how infants and toddlers and their families are served. It also demands a greater effort to align and expand the current patchwork of social support programs to serve young children in a cohesive way that best sets them up for success now and in the future. To provide this more robust and seamless approach to service delivery, considering growing diversity and poverty among our youngest children, this report offers the following policy recommendations:
- Increase funding for infants and toddlers consistent with the cost of providing quality care and education.
- Create single entry points for early childhood programs serving infants and toddlers.
- Allow states to apply for federal infant and toddler funds through a single application with the goal of aligning services.
- Invest in developing more evidence-based programs for diverse populations.
- Enhance outreach efforts to all communities.
