A recent study performed by the Riley Institute at Furman University reported that 80% of the learning process takes place between the ages of 0-5 yet our state spends only 8% of their total educational recourses on that age group. It appears that we have it backwards. We've got to find ways to fund 3-4 year kindergarten. One thing that might help with this is to create a uniform criteria/curriculum for all childcare providers and set a required educational level or certification for those teachers/providers. This would raise the bar on quality as well as provide consistent instruction to all children.
