Cut to the chase free preschool for everybody can't work: Movie director Rob Reiner is pushing for free day care for every 4-year old in California...but the experience elsewhere says it would be an expensive disaster
by Shikha Dalmia & Lisa Snell Reason, Chicago Sun-Times, pB4, 11-Dec-05
Free care is expensive care
Setting aside the inherent difficulty of accurately quantifying such nebulous and distant benefits (of an investment in preschool supposedly paying for itself), such calculations inevitably underestimate the ultimate bill because they don't take into account the inflationary pressures that the program itself creates.
The final price for Quebec's day care program is 33 times what was originally projected...
Much of the increased spending has gone not toward increased access, but increased costs. Day-care worker unions, on threat of a strike, negotiated a 40 percent increase in wages over four years...
Besides unions, the other major reason for the skyrocketing costs is that when people don't pay the full price for a service, they consume more of it -- what economists call the problem of the 'moral hazard'...

Cut to the chase free preschool for everybody can't work...
by Shikha Dalmia & Lisa Snell Reason, Chicago Sun-Times, pB4, 11-Dec-05
But perhaps the most shocking part of Quebec's (day care) program is that it is reinforcing the very inequities it was meant to eradicate. Many low-income parents, who lost their child-care tax deductions so that government could finance the program, have been crowded out by middle- and upper-income parents more savvy at negotiating the system. According to research by Peter Shawn Taylor for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, half of Quebec's day-care spaces are taken by families in the top 30 percent income bracket.

Cut to the chase free preschool for everybody can't work...
by Shikha Dalmia & Lisa Snell Reason, Chicago Sun-Times, pB4, 11-Dec-05
Universal preschool sounds progressive, but actually has pernicious unintended consequences for the parents and children it seeks to help.
