Fuckin Brats Don't Need Edumacation

Now you see why family guys like Planet Boob and Mikey Thayer are jerking each other off to pictures of Terry Branstad. He thinks like they do.

If Governor Terry Branstad and many Republicans have their way, state funded preschool for all children could be a thing of the past.

Since the program started in 2007, universal pre-school cost the state $156 million. House Republicans vowed to slash the budget by $500 million. They say an easy cut would be to stop paying for all four-year-olds to go to school. That upsets many parents who say pre-school is making a huge difference in their child's life.

Branstad whom in his former run as governor nearly lost to Gopher from the Love Boat in a Republican primary wants to go to vouchers. You know the old Republican tried and true let's get the poor to pay for our child's education while still not letting them go to our schools scheme. Oh well at least we no longer have the worst governor in America.

So, to ensure that future generations aren't laboring under crushing debt, the preventive steps taken are going to be to ensure that they lack the educational opportunity to make their way in the world anyway. Just brilliant.

Boob says only the wealthy would lose their pre-school the article says:

Instead of the universal pre-school program, Gov. Branstad wants to give vouchers to low income families. That leaves out families stuck in the middle who can't afford private pre-school.

"We are middle class and we're not able to afford pre-school if not for this program. My son wouldn't get the quality education from certified teachers," says Shelly.

Even if you do get a voucher, Guest says there's no guarantee the teachers at that pre-school will have the same training.

"Those vouchers need to be used in programs that uphold the Iowa quality pre-school standard that our district has worked so hard to meet," says Guest.

In the Des Moines School District, 50 teachers and 22 assistants are in danger of losing their jobs.

Des Moines Public schools has about 2,000 pre-schoolers. If the universal program is cut, they would lose 69% of their funding. That means they could only serve roughly 600 students.

Epic fail boob.
