mom31257 Posted October 29, 2012 Share Posted October 29, 2012 I thought this article shed so much light on child development and academic success. http://preventdisease.com/news/12/102912_Shocking-Scans-Show-The-Real-Impact-of-Love-on-a-Childs-Brain.shtml This shows that our school systems can't do it all. Millions of tax dollars are spent every year trying to level the playing field for all children, and as long as we have parents who neglect their children and don't really love them, it can never be such. It's a shame that teachers are fearing losing their jobs over student performance when the children are faced with these kinds of disadvantages. The system ends up focusing somewhat on the gifted and spending so much money, time, and effort on the lowest performing students, and who gets left out are all those 70% or so in the middle who will be the backbone of this country. I think the money would be better spend on major parenting intervention for the youngest in our country to give the children a chance to have the right kind of brain when they get to school.
