Perhaps it’s because of comments posited from the likes of Ron Haskins, senior fellow and co-director of the Center on Children and Families at the Brookings Institution, a liberal D.C. think tank.
He was the keynote speaker yesterday in Richmond at something called the Early Childhood Public Engagement Summit — Virginia’s first, mind you; a “summit” not of heads of state meaning it’s a meeting of people who think they are important.

Like the whiny child, perhaps the educrat need to get sent to their room with no TV, no toys but with a good book to read.
