Well, at least that's what the maths say.
I estimated the amount of time children, from kindergarten to 12th grade, spend with their parents, vs. teachers and daycare providers.
There are some assumptions I made and you can certainly calculate your own figures, but including weekends, friends, commuting, summers, etc. those state paid teachers spend a HUGE amount of time more with your child than you do. AND keep in mind their ENTIRE JOB is to be teaching and engaging them the entire time. Your time also includes feeding them, lecturing them, chores, etc. NOT sitting down and TALKING with them.
you need a career
you voted democrat because you care
you need to pay those taxes
you need to pay for strangers to raise your kid in daycare
so you're in the clear.
I'm sure your child will come visit you in the nursing home.
