Let's talk about education in this country

By
Real Estate Agent with Watson Realty Corp

The Early Learning Coilition...helps expose toddlers and pre-schoolers to books, words and any vehicle that helps them to experience the joys and potential of the written word. It is a well-known fact that if a child reaches the age of 6 without receiving certain brain stimuli, those "electric" circuits will not activate. I heard on the radio that if a child does not acquire a reading level beyond the 4th grade that he or she will have an 80% chance of ending up in jail. If a child does not graduate from high school, he or she will most likely earn an average of $12,000 yearly which is really poverty line level. Is this the time to cut educational programs? Is it ever the right time? Check out the Dolly Parton Library - any child born after May 2008 can sign up and receive a free book every month until they are 5!! 

I love living and working at real estate in St. Augustine.  (Click to see a Saint Augustine slideshow)  If you're looking for property in St. Augustine Beach, Historic District, or anywhere in St. Johns County, I can help!
