President Joe Biden ahs announced that children in his America will be starting school at a much younger age. Currently the public school system in America guarantees K-12 education. In some areas, local school districts have offered optional pay-to-use pre-K options.
Now, Biden said he is going to ensure that school for children in America starts when children are three years old, adding two years of government pre-k to the school curriculum.
“12 years is no longer enough today to compete with the rest of the world in 21st century. That’s why my American Families Plan guarantees four additional years of public education to person every America, starting as early as we can,” Biden said. “The great universities in this country have conducted studies over last 10 years. It shows that adding in two years of universal high quality pre-school for every three-year-old and four-year-old no matter what background they come from, puts them in the position to be able to compete all the way through 12 years, and increases exponentially their prospect of graduating and going on and beyond graduation.”
Biden said on the tail end, he will extend the child education process with two years of free community college, turning the educational process into a 16-year cycle for all American students.
He also took a swipe at America’s private daycare industry.
“Research shows when a young child goes to school, not daycare, they’re far more likely to graduate from high school, and go to college or something after high school. When you add two years of free community college on top of that, you begin to change the dynamic. We can do that,” Biden said.
