Much like head start programs that show so much promise, these programs early advantages disappear by third grade. Money could be spent in other areas to gain a more lasting impact on a child's education. There is nothing like peaking in the third grade.<quoted text>
You mentioned "if we let the Parents decide early enough in a child's education ...." Not sure what you meant by that but I have a question. Wouldn't having an all day kindergarten give the children that much more to start with? There is so much talk on this site about putting the children's education first but when it comes down to it if it will cost any extra money then in reality our wallets come first.
I agree Springboro could be doing so much more for their kids. Lets offer more AP classes, lets have more intervention in the elementary schools, lets not let any kids down.
Let's put that money to work where it will gain us the pathways to better final results and classes in high school.'
