Pre-k programs help prepare children for future

Classes start year with waiting lists

Posted: Sunday, August 7, 2011 12:00 am

For many students, starting school in kindergarten is just too late.

Funded by Georgia Lottery funds, pre-kindergarten has become an essential part of the school experience for an entire generation of children in the state, and local school systems have done their best to provide enough space for all the families eager to give their children a head start on public education.

    Pre-K program -- Why is it needed ?

    Kids show up and they are NOT "equipped with the basic skills and behaviors needed for success in school." (See above article.)
    Cradle to grave, womb to tomb however it is described, is simply a lack of effort from parents to prepare their children for the real world.

    Earlier generations had no benefit of Pre-K or even Kindergarten. Even survived years of double sessions.
    They were expected to go to school on the bus, behave and listen. Return home on the bus, get on homework and then play.

    Each fall (school began after Labor Day) parents bought a package of art supplies for personal use No communal sharing that is how disease is spread.
    School ended in May. Schools were not air conditioned.

    They are the leaders in the community, state, nation and even the world today.

    Why is Pre-K needed ? Something has gone terribly wrong with society and the schools cannot fix it.

    The fix begins before and after the bus rides

    Leaders lead. Lemmings follow. Which will your child be ?
