Proficiency of Black Students

This should be a no brainer for anyone who has had kids. Children begin the learning process in infancy and the groundwork for higher learning needs to be in place by 3 yrs.

[“There’s accumulating evidence that there are racial differences in what kids experience before the first day of kindergarten,” said Ronald Ferguson, director of the Achievement Gap Initiative at Harvard. “They have to do with a lot of sociological and historical forces. In order to address those, we have to be able to have conversations that people are unwilling to have.”]

The sad fact is that Liberals want to throw more money at grade school and high school to improve the lot of black children. They need to shift the scarce resources to early childhood and address the root of the problem; kids having kids.
