Both should be supported by those who want to use it and those interested in their continued operation, not general taxpayer funds.

Educating young children is a public good. Everyone wants to use 'it', where 'it' is having more educated people in your society. So it should be paid for by everyone - from general taxpayer funds.

The same argument applies for Planned Parenthood, where the 'it' is the reduced population of unwanted children who grow up to be unproductive adults or criminals.
