OK, now I’m against state-funded preschool. Because no preschool at all is better than this kind of atrocity:
Fuck you, Obama. And fuck you, Rusty and Rosy.
Rural communities! It’s like poisoning the water supply in these rural communities and using taxpayer money to do it. I see no difference between this and giving cigarettes to preschoolers.
And here is a predictor of academic underachievement for racial minorities:
White children are exposed to screens significantly less than African-American and Hispanic children.
This is extremely troubling. And this is exactly why I keep saying that it’s not true that there is too much talk about race. There are almost no conversations about what really matters in terms of race, and this is an example.
By the way, today – the Monday after a very busy news week and days before the election – articles #1, 3, and 6 on the NYTimes most popular list are about the dangers of technology for children. This is what people care about.
