12. Our recycled Republican governor (Iowa) wants to obliterate pre-school
education in a state that has always been fiercely proud of its educational standards.

Instead of universal pre-school, low-income parents will have to take time from their jobs to fill out paperwork applying for "scholarships" so their kids can afford to pay to go to pre-schools.

Makes me furious.

Keeping poor women pregnant and keeping poor kids dumb are two of the highest ideals of the Republican party, it seems.
