CNSNews.com) – Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told CNSNews.com on Wednesday that the administration's new $500 million early learning initiative is designed to deal with children from birth onward to prevent such problems as 5-year olds who "can't sit still" in a kindergarten classroom.

Aside from the money, this is just more BS for earlier state control over children. As if a 5-year old not sitting still in a classroom means there is something literally wrong with him. This is another problem with cookie-cutter education systems. Just because child is not ready by a certain age or date, just means he is not ready. Coercian to keep him there is just sets that child up for future issues with school. Let the kid go out for a good hard run or physical exercise if he can't sit still long enough. But this will not "prevent" a thing but probably make it worse.

If a state worker ever came to my door to inspect before there was a problem, like they did in Mass to my sister, I'd put a gun through the mail slot.

I wonder how much money could be saved if the problem was addressed with shock collars.

I hear that billion dollar stuff is small, so this must be too small to even see.

Nailguns are a very effective treatment for the child who can't sit still. Plus they don't cost $500 million.
