Early education, from birth to 2nd grade, provides the building blocks of all learning
Research is clear that early math and literacy deficits start well before 3rd grade. Many of us take for granted that the earliest learning is being taken care of at home. But the learning gap between advantaged and at risk children shows up as early as 9 months of age, and at-risk children can start kindergarten as much as 18 months behind their peers. Many of these children never catch up, and are at great risk of dropping out of high school.
Where you live should not determine if or how you live. The majority of Tennessee’s 3rd graders are not proficient in math and reading. Yet 3rd grade is a pivotal year for future academic success.
That’s why Tennessee needs to strengthen early learning — in the classroom, at childcare centers and at home .
