We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
My kids went to daycare (I don't even call it Pre-K) because my wife and I both worked. It had little to do with their education - other than it was healthier than them watching TV all day with a babysitter.
Ask any social worker - they prefer to have the kids in Pre-K instead of home with their "clients" even if the parent doesn't work. The environment is better and safer than home. Most want a full day too. Unfortunately, the only way they can impose this rule is to force even the parents who don't want it to be required to use it - PUBLIC education.
