Don’t leave investment in kids to chance

The following is a Letter to the Editor of the Des Moines Register written by Tom LaPointe:

The USA Today’s “GOP Debate Bingo Card” [Aug. 2] lacked a serious choice on “Investing in Kids.” In today’s world, kids are our future. According, to a Kathie Obradovich column “Iowa voters say debate kid’s issues” [Aug. 4] noting a recent Ann Selzer Poll, presidential candidates should be talking about these investments in kids and our future. I agree. Investments in children should not be left to chance in presidential debates or Bingo games. Voters have taken notice, let’s hope candidates do the same.
