Democratic presidential candidate and California Sen. Kamala Harris has introduced a bill rolling out a pilot program that keeps children in school until 6:00 P.M., ostensibly to help their parents be able to work longer hours without having to worry about childcare costs.
The bill sparked a number of critiques from conservatives.
Even liberal Whoopi Goldberg commented, “I think keeping a kid in school until 6:00 is like institutionalizing them.”
The Family Friendly Schools Act, which is co-sponsored by five left-wing Democrats, seeks to “align the school day with the work day.”
The proposal sounds “like classic Harris: She identifies a situation most would agree is not great and sets about remedying it in a punitive, authoritarian way almost no one likes,” wrote Bonnie Kristian in a scathing analysis of the bill at The Week.
