Mark Zuckerberg and Wife to Create New Cradle-to-Graduation School

PolitiChicks.comMark Zuckerberg’s philanthropy knows no bounds. In his latest venture he will be offering a “new school” and you can be certain it will aid education planners in their venture to create cradle to grave care for U.S. citizens–and probably illegal immigrants, too.

A recent CS Monitor article outlines the Zuckerberg’s new business venture, and no, it’s not tech-related. Under the leadership of Zuckerberg’s wife, Priscilla Chan, the couple is planning to open their own school in Palo Alto, California. The Primary School will serve the children of East Palo Alto and Belle Haven, Kindergarten through grade 12. More distinctively, the school will also provide its students health care services from birth to graduation.

“I’m so proud of Priscilla for starting The Primary School – a new kind of school that brings education and healthcare together,” Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post. “Health and education are closely connected. When children aren’t healthy, they can’t learn as easily.”

(Remember what Hitler said about being able to talk anyone into anything as long as you say it’s “in the name of children”?)

In partnership with Ravenswood Family Health Center, the school will even offer prenatal care for parents. There is no tuition.

The health center, located close to the school, will give comprehensive health and dental care for students and their families. The school will also have an on-site clinic.

“By integrating education, health, and family support services starting at birth, TPS will expand the traditional definition of ‘school’ in order to prepare all children to succeed in college, career, and life,” the organization’s website reads.

Programming starts next year with full-time school for four-year-olds and parent-based activities for infants and two-year-olds.
