This came out on the NYTimes website a few days ago.
It says that the education gap between the rich and the middle class has gotten much bigger since the 80s. They don't see a huge difference in achievement when the kids are in school, but the rich kids are coming in to kinder better prepared. The gap narrows during the school year and widens again in the summer.
In light of that, do you think preschool is something that should be pushed for all kids?
I find myself disheartened when I see the antipathy for preschool on here. That's one of the best ways to put your kid ahead, IMO, and I really don't get it. And it sometimes seems like the families who most need it are the ones who don't want to do it.
