Waterford Reading Academy- Investing in quality early childhood development in order to reduce academic deficits I don’t know if you’ve heard about the Theory of Change and I’m speaking to early childhood educators so I know I’m preaching to the choir. Generally what we do across the country is allocate funds to credit recovery, RTI, remediation, and dropout prevention. However, if you flip that model and allocate more funds to early childhood then what will happen down the road? We will alleviate the need for those funds to be used to catch kids up and instead provide them with a strong start. Do you know what research says about a child that is not reading on grade level by 3rd or 4th grade? Students who are not reading on grade level by 3rd or 4th grade have to quadruple their learning just to play catch up. As a former high school principal, unfortunately I see the aftermath of educators failing children year after year by not allocating funding at the early childhood level. If we’re waiting until 3rd grade and then realize they are behind and try to put them into interventions, we have failed children. This is what we do at Waterford. We build that strong foundation before it’s too late.
