"In other words: Design the best programs possible. Then we’ll worry about funding them."
The quote is from Madison Mayor Paul Soglin, and the issue is "the achievement gap" in Madison schools. Soglin has suggested "expanding access to nutritious food outside of school, supporting transportation for students and parents, and increasing the amount of time children spend in learning environments."
Increasing the amount of time children spend in learning environments sounds like a polite way of saying keep them away from their parents as much as possible.
