Can the Government do it better?

This is a long, thoughtful and well researched article into "universal child care", specifically in connection to childhood obesity. Despite the government run school failures in pretty much everything (achievement tests, social skills, etc.) they want our children younger and younger.

So we're supposed to institutionalize our kids from the age of 3 on up. Is it any wonder kids hate school by the time they're 7?!

And what about a national curriculum for babies? If the thought of some social worker coming to check on your baby's development in "four distinct curriculum headings" doesn't send chills up your spine then I don't know what will.
