State Sen. Bill Kintner of Papillion recently held a town hall meeting and mounted what appeared to be a one-man assault on early childhood education.
Kintner told the assembled crowd in Nebraska City that universal preschool is a scary idea, a federal government plot, and in fact “a dream of social engineers to get their hands on our kids,” according to news accounts of the meeting.
