Not Just The Kids

I briefly made this point, as I tend to briefly make all my points, but universal pre-k isn't just about helping the children and their future selves.

I honestly have no idea how two worker families with children manage. Of course one worker families with children have a hard time managing for different reasons. But the lack of affordable childcare, school hours/days which don't match work times, ratcheted up expectations about 24/7 helicopter parenting... Obviously pre-K doesn't solve all of these problems, but hopefully it will provide a bit of relief for parents.
