Many people are accusing me of lying about this exorbitant $2,500.00 fee.
But, here is an article from the Forest Lake Times, the main local newspaper:
"Officials in the Forest Lake district are on the same page and have opted to fund the full-day program. The district officers an all-day program now at a cost of $2500 a year for parents. Lower costs are available for parents that qualify under free and reduced guidelines."
During the "Shock and Awe" bombing and invasion of Iraq dozens of schools were bombed, hundreds of school children killed and maimed at a cost of billions of dollars while it would only cost $40,000,000.00 to provide every child in Minnesota with all-day Kindergarten... one more cost of imperialism... in so many ways people pay a terrible price for Wall Street's dirty imperialist wars.
I would note that the Democratic super majority here in Minnesota has refused to even address any of this in a resolution to Obama and Congress calling for the re-ordering of this country's priorities away from war and militarism towards satisfying and meeting human needs--- like Kindergarten.
I would also note that in the same issue of the Forest Lake Times there are seven solid pages of home foreclosure notices from this one small community.
There are 11 "help wanted" adds in the same newspaper.
The government is printing 85 billion dollars a month to pay for wars--- death and destruction; but where are the promised jobs, why do people have to pay for their children to go to Kindergarten and why are the home foreclosures continuing over 5 years after Obama assumed office?
Budgets are a reflection of our true priorities--- and the priorities of this Wall Street bribed government are all out of whack.
