Aug 30, 2010. Globe and Mail – article “Full-day kindergarten spending may deliver twice the returns: report” (broken link)
Let’s look at who is behind this media release and report:
- Atkinson Charitable Foundation (broken link)—Charles Pascal, Ontario’s Early Learning Advisor and head of the all-day Kindergarten push in Ontario, led this organization/lobbying group for years until he got his current job.
- The McCain family also funded this paper and also fund the daycare lobby group, Childcare Resource and Research Unit, run by Martha Friendly.
- The McCain family stands to benefit from the increase in state-run institutional child care as they employ low wage workers in their food industry companies and sell convenience frozen food to parents who do not have time to cook.
