It is essential, and yet not all families can afford it. It's a steep price to pay but parent(s) have to pay it because they have to work. That or they leave them with their families, and I'm not saying that that's a bad thing. They have to do what they can afford and it is all they can do. But, this is where our government should be helping parents because these kids need those first essential steps, and it's not fair that they can't get them.
Everyone should receive good education, as people who can't afford will suffer and equality is important. Also if there are more educated children more likely they would be able to get a well paid job which means more money for the country to help develop. Education is very important since it will help you get far in life.
Evidence has shown that children who lack education are more likely to be a burden to the state and its citizens, later in life. Uneducated children are more likely to grow up to commit petty and serious crimes, less likely to be gainfully employed, and more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol. All of those consequences are a burden to society and the lifelong cost of supporting each criminal in prison is greater than that of providing early education. It is to a society's benefit to have an educated population. Educated citizens are more likely to be gainfully employed, in good health, and to be productively involved with their communities.
Yes, free nursery school would be great, if given out by the state or even the federal government. Parents need to work, and the rising cost of day care is crippling families. It doesn't even make sense anymore for both parents to work, because one whole salary would go to the schools.
I believe that, in our society, all people should have access to a quality education, not just children of the wealthy. By guaranteeing a free, high quality, nursery school program for everyone, we allow all children, rich and poor, a more equal start on their educational journey. Poor children already have too many disadvantages when it comes to education. We have a moral obligation to ensure that they at least get off to a good start, in a free nursery school program.
Unemployment is one the biggest issues in our country, and always has been. Which the government supports via welfare and unemployment programs, hurting the economy. The best way to counter unemployment is to be as educated of a job force as possible. Making the choice to make education as accessible for everyone as possible saves money in the long run, as people have more job opportunities open to them.
During the first few years of a child's development, the brain is like a sponge. They learn and grasp new information very quickly. Unfortunately, not all parents could afford to send their little children to nursery and some are left neglected. Attending a free nursery would be very beneficial to them as they get to learn a lot through interaction.
Our taxes go towards public school, so they should all go toward nursery education. Most families these days have two working parents and nursery care is an important need that not everyone can afford.
Yes, I agree that free nursery education should be provided by the State to all children. It enhances their learning power and increases their vocabulary. Children are the future of every society and country so when we make the foundation strong the future will automatically be bright. Young minds should be nurtured in a good way.
Children with no prior experience with education suffer when they enter kindergarten. They are behind and lack much of the knowledge that other children have. Studies have shown that early education can mean a life time of success so lets do that for our children- give them a good head start in life with state provided education.
Child care is a huge and expensive hurdle for all mothers much less single low income parents. If there were free reliable childcare available across the board then we could get more people out there in the work force and off public assistance, this would lead to a better life for the child, the parents, and society in general.
There are already free public schools for children of formal education age, so why not provide free State-run nursery education? This would help prepare them for the social and educational hurdles they might face when they enter the first grade, and there would be less pressure for parents to worry about properly integrating their children into the school system. Socializing them with other nursery-age children before any social anxieties develop is a healthy thing to do.
Education is the process through which we can ensure the all round development of a child. Through education, a child is taught to discern good from evil and absorb good things.
During the academic life, a child gets an opportunity to explore his hidden talents and abilities, thus becoming successful as an individual. The foundation of the growth of a child is laid during this period and I feel it's the duty of the state to give this unique opportunity to every child, irrespective of all other factors.
It's been observed that lack of education leads to the development of criminal tendencies in a child, thus making him a liability to the society. So, in the better interest of mankind, every child must get at least basic education and an opportunity to excel in life.
Many school districts already have free nursery education through the public school system. In our school system, it is free, but not required. It's very helpful for working parents, and for kids who are English language learners, and fun for the kids.
There are lots of poor families who can't even afford to send their child for nursery schools. If the nursery education is free then the parents will send them. To make a good citizen the child should get a proper education, so actually it's the need of State to provide education. Otherwise there is a good chance that the uneducated grown child will be ignorant even to the pride of its state. So it is really important to give education.
While spending per child has doubled since 1960, even accounting for inflation, student test scores have remained flat. High school graduation rates are manipulated to avoid admitting that 20% of American born students never finish. Schools, despite their massive funding, graduate functionally illiterate students. A third of college students require remedial courses to have the necessary skills to attend a college freshman course. Given this overwhelming failure, free nursery education provided by the state would quickly devolve into the same low standards as public K-12 schools. And, when mixed with the corrosive ethos of teachers' unions, when teachers that harm neglect and molest children cannot be fired immediately, children in "free" nursery care will suffer. We cannot create nursery school provided by the state, simply for the sake of the children.
We already have enough government programs to overflow our economy and drive our national debt sky high. The last thing we need is to take another thing that parents should be providing to their children, the basics of early childhood education, and foisting it upon an already overly large and overly taxed government. Let's take some responsibility for our own children's early education and leave the state out of it.
well its not going to be fair everyone because some people are poor and they have to pay this tax. in my opinion i think there shouldn't be free kids nursery by this state
People today seem to want somebody else to pay for everything. If a person can not afford to raise a child, she should avoid becoming pregnant. The State has so many other important things to take care of such as infrastructure, crime, and housing. Taxes would have to be increased and those without young children would unfairly bear much of the cost. All citizens need to take care of their own expenses and live within their means.
In order for any state to provide child nursery care, taxes would have to be raised to provide those services. Noone wants to have any taxes raised. The American worker is already taxed enough. Most people have private care or they rely on a family member to help take care of their children while they are at work. And for the state to incorporate such a measure everyone would have to pay the tax equally. It would not be fair for those people who have private care to have to pay taxes for a service that they would never use.
Nurseries are a great idea for companies that employ mothers. It can be a nice way to let the moms be close to their little ones but still be employed outside the home. I don't think it should be the burden of the state to provide this to children, though. If women have to have their child in nursery school and their employer doesn't provide this service, it's a shame, but it isn't the responsibility of the government to pay for it. A mother can stay at home until her child is of the age where he/she can go to a school that is free.
Our country does not have the available funds that would be required to fund a free state run nursery system. This idea would be extremely expensive. If possible, I believe nursery age children will do better if given loving care from a parent of family member.
The states already fund the public school system from our tax dollars. Not all residents have children and they still must pay for the schools. Adding state nursery schools would add to the school systems bill and ultimately the tax payers would pay for it.
Also, I believe it is better for little kids to have smaller class sizes. It would be very hard to properly monitor the staff required for early childhood care. Not to mention the diaper changing and proper sanitation needed to maintain a healthy environment for babies. There just is not enough money in the state budget to cover all that is needed to properly fund nursery schools.
