Letter to the editor | Education begins early

As the new school year approaches, many families are getting children ready for kindergarten. What children learn from birth affects how well they will do in kindergarten and in life. Research shows that about 90 percent of our brains are developed by age 5, as well are our capabilities for problem-solving, creativity and teamwork. Research also shows that children receiving quality early education are more likely to do better in school, graduate high school, attend college or job training and have higher earnings.
