I think that President-Elect Barack Obama has some good ideas here when talking about early childhood education. I agree that many students are coming into school and they are considered to be already behind because they did not learn some of their basic skills from the home. I do not know if his ideas of teaching parents how to parent will necessarily work. While I think it is a good idea in theory to educate parents on what they should be teaching their children, I do not know if this will ever actually happen. I hope now that he is our future president that he will follow through with some of these ideas and make some changes in the education system.
