In order to score political points with parents, a Democratic presidential hopeful wants to turn public schools into daycares.
Fox News reports Sen. Kamala Harris believes her proposal, the Family Friends Schools Act, would "reduce the burden of childcare on working families."
Christian author Janice Crouse, who is a former school teacher, says this is not a new idea of the Left but it's still a bad idea.
Crouse, Janice (CWA)"Having free time is necessary for kids,” she says. “And [if] you take that away, it's very detrimental to their learning.”
She says parents, and especially those who are Christians, should be greatly concerned about an extended school day.
"Anybody who reads what's happening,” she says, “would be extremely concerned about even more time for our children to be indoctrinated and more time for them to be influenced."
