They'd learn that socialized medicine doesn't work for very long. They'd learn that letting in too many immigrants from Muslim countries isn't a very good idea--and leads to the very rape culture they fantasize exists at US university campuses. And they'd learn that universal pre-Kindergarten doesn't solve society's ills, but creates more:
A scathing report, highlighted in the UK Daily Mail, details the findings of the Institute of Economic Affairs regarding Britain’s universal free childcare program. The bottom line: researchers have concluded that a government-funded, government-mandated universal daycare and pre-K program has done nothing more than bankrupt the middle class while failing to serve the country’s poor. What’s worse, government involvement has led to excessive regulation that not only drives up programming costs, but limits parental choice when it comes to how they would like to care for and educate their own children...*sigh*
The statistics should come as no surprise to concerned Americans following the push for universal pre-K on this side of the pond. In 2013 the Wall Street Journal published an analysis that determined universal pre-K had “negligible educational value,” while being “massively expensive.” Politicians push the idea based on studies showing the “value” of Pre-K in the short-term while ignoring the long-term. The reality is that low-income children who receive the immediate benefit of preschool education still wind up behind the game academically because they lack the necessary support at home to sustain education benefits into the future.
The true intention of citing the studies is to distract from the fact that universal pre-K has nothing to do with education and everything to do with providing glorified daycare services so that parents can go to work. Two-income families would be required in order to pay for universal childcare programming. In other words, it wouldn’t matter if a mother or father believed in or wanted to stay at home with their preschool aged children. Under federally regulated preschool, they wouldn’t have a choice. Both parents would be forced to work full-time just to generate the tax dollars that would pay for the program. Hence, as the British researcher above noted, universal pre-school legislation not only tells mom and dad to get back to work, but takes over parent decision-making as well.
