Pre-K on the Starting Blocks
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD
Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ambitious plan to provide preschool education to every 4-year-old brings high expectations.
As a way to Fight Inequality Now, universal pre-K sounds ... stately. The median age of the Forbes 400 is around 66, so if enrolling 4-year-olds in 2014 works as well as promised, it should really make a dent in about half of the Forbes 400 within 62 years, which is 2076.
I'll be attending my 100th high school reunion (yearbook theme: The Spirit of '76) via one of Robin Hanson's downloaded brain emulations, so I have that to look forward to, which is nice.
