    Value of PreSchool

    In the study [Science journal] , researchers in England found that the benefits of attending a good preschool, including improved mathematic and reading ability and social skills, can last for several years and give children a leg up when they enter elementary school. For example, 10-year-olds who had attended a high-quality preschool -- a designation based on the researchers' observations -- scored 27% higher in math than those who had attended poor preschools. That may sound obvious, but the study follows a recent one that compared kids who attended preschool with those who didn't, with similar results.
    Of course to the Twinkies here, reality and science mean nothing when they conflict with their prejudices.
