+Mike Waldon Thank you for sharing. This means communities will have to call them out. Protest. Sign agreements. In fact, they should not be getting money, but putting money out. If they really want to make a difference, they will NOT BE DEMAINDING tax incentives. They get these for coming into he community in the first place, providing low-wage jobs. The Administrators of these programs need to specify to the corporations what they hope to achieve, how much it will cost and how the money will be moved into the school system  line by line, as a proper invoice. Don't include politicians. Instead, initiatves need to be a collaboration between parents, teachers and ground roots organizers who have already designed (on paper w/ budgets) programs of action that simply need to be funding. In the meantime, put their agregious deceptions on the news, on YouTube on local billboards and then BOYCOTT the hell out of them. MONEY TALKS.

Quite frankly, I agree...all the heavy hitters who run education will be getting the money.

Can't people see it? There is NO VILLAGE. The world is not communal. Ms Barrett, your comment pre-supposes some kind of brotherhood among us. You know that Ms. Jones wants her child to step over yours, not work with, not cooperate (unless the teacher is giving stars out for coopeation that day). Look at old Twilight Zone episodes. Even China is seeing a shift from collective moving to selective. If you work in the "collective,"  you are servile, unappreciated and over-worked. AMERICAN CHILDREN get taught to be leaders, foremen, rich men, bullies at the least. Who are you guys kiddinng? The swing of that is in pre-school, kindergarten and grade-school, no competition, so no winners or losers. Then one day they enter the real-world and what a bummer they get. I thought I wanted to teach, but I was still a kid, then American's decided that teachers should also be social workers that get chewed out when unruly kids, not fearing anyone, can't read. What the hell? YOU WANT YOUR KIDS TO BE SMART? You want them to be good citizens? You TEACH THEM then. Stop being greedy, thankless and demanding. Who can manage 40 kids with cell-phones, more rights than adults and the belief that a teacher is nothing but a noisy grown-up with nothing better to do than make life difficult? And oh, their parents agree.

+Sheila Huffman Why free? And why for the early years? (By the way, I'm 50). I get it, women in my mother's generation took baby-making and marriage for granted, until the 1960's. My generation, however, knows fully-well that ours is a Darwinian world where every man has to fend for himself - mostly. Poor people should think like the upper-class. Don't make babies until you have trunks of money for the ifs and buts of the human experience. Otherwise, be prepared to suffer. Jobs (other than retail) will get scarcer. Technology makes shopping possible without cashiers. Maybe robots will eventually move whole aisles in and out of grocery stores in minutes - saving not only on labor, but eliminating OCEA and lliability costs as well. There has never been an express agenda to make life easier, not one fully agreed upon by the society as a whole. The right wing will oppose it. Liberals want it because rich liberal don't want to help anyone at the personal level. They too are elitists. The soonerr individuals embrace the dystopian future that inevitably lies ahead of us, they better off individuals will be. Thankfully, I'll not be around to see the total demise of social safety nets. Baby-boomers still hold enough sway to keep it aloft until the last of us has died.
