Another great debate

The Iowa Senate is now debating whether pre-school = Nazi indoctrination.

On the one hand:
“As Senator McCoy pointed out, the Chinese are taking 2- and 3-year-olds and educating them. And as a student of history, I also know the Nazis, the Soviets, a whole variety of groups, a whole variety of countries, take their children because it’s not just up to age six they’re so malleable."

And on the other side:
Democratic Sen. Tom Courtney said he recently visited Black Hawk Preschool in Burlington where a teacher named Rachel was trying to give about 40 kids a head start on kindergarten.

“Didn’t see any Nazis,” said Courtney, who lives in Burlington. “Didn’t see any indoctrination.”

Ehh...but how can we be sure?
