Tom Corbett and early learning and K-12 education

It was right before the Governor election and Tom Corbett was on a TV Show, being interviewed. He was talking about how to get more people to go back to work and being out of state support programs and he said he was going to put some cut on those help programs like early learning education programs. I called the station and ask him how do you think people is going to be able to get up on their own feet if you cut the only help they have to take care of their children while going back to work. He came with the typical political response and he said he need to cut expenses and those were one of many to be put on the chop block. How are we going to be able to help people support themselves if we take away the only help they have to care for their kids while going to work??? Not everyone has grandparents to take care of your children.
