Psaki spoke out harshly about the quality of pre-school education in the U.S.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki, comparing the level of preschool education in the United States and other countries, and said that the United States was behind developed countries and “even Latvia.”
At a daily White House briefing, Psaki talked about President Joe Biden’s upcoming trip to a state, during which he will talk about the importance of investing in child care.
“Only about half of three- to four-year-olds in the United States are registered as receiving prior education. Compared to 90 percent of children in developed countries — Germany, France, Great Britain and even Latvia. You shouldn’t have said ‘even’ – and also in Latvia,” Psaki said.
