While making up for the 15,000 word-deficit that exists in high school seems impossible, preventing the 600 word deficit before it starts in preschool is in our reach.
By helping parents teach their children just one extra word a day in the pivotal years before preschool, you will help close the achievement gap before it starts.
Don’t let a week go by without using your words to rebel against inequality.
