    We have seen fantastic results in our grand-daughter.  If those advantages are often nullified by the third grade, I can only imagine it would have something to do with the extreme warping of our education system into a "teaching to the test" system...or possibly some other flaw that stunts education.

    Life circumstances for her mother and funding cutbacks have prevented her from continuing beyond preschool, but she is doing so well in school now, that continued help from her Nana will likely keep her thriving.

    Surely it is much less expensive than the Juvenile Injustice system, and the resultant pipeline into the adult equivalent.  Not that she has much chance in ending up in either, with family that really does care about poor kids.
