Preach Ms. Pappas!

Writer emeritus, the original Ms. (Sophia) Pappas wrote an Op-Ed to McCain that has been posted on Inside Pre-K. Here is just a pinch...
Perhaps his running mate, Alaska governor Sarah Palin, will encourage him to (increase federal support for pre-k) do so. Federal pre-k incentives could help Alaska start a state-funded pre-k program, and Palin has proposed increasing her state's investment in Head Start.
She also writes...
Pre-k also fits well with McCain’s broad education framework of innovation, choice, and accountability. At its core, pre-k empowers parents to provide their children with rich educational and social experiences during the most critical period of brain development. States are building voluntary programs that let families choose from a wide range of pre-k providers, including public schools, Head Start centers, community-based child care, and in some states faith-based institutions.

Don't know about her support for pre-k, which I definitely think is a good idea (both pre-k AND her support, that is), but Jon Stewart called her "McCain's 3rd wife" on the "Daily Show" last nite. I also think she resembles Tina Fey from SNL. Support for Head Start increases is a start, though. BTW, come join us for some insane fun tomorrow, with my Silly Sunday Sweepstakes!
