    What's up with all the periods? Anyway, let's see what we have here:

    (btw, this copy-pasting was incredibly glitchy, lol...)

    "Head Start group children did significantly better on the PPVT (a vocabulary measure) for 4-year-olds and on the Woodcock-Johnson III test of Oral Comprehension for the 3-year-olds.

    "By the end of 1st grade, there was some evidence that the 3-year-old cohort had closer and more positive relationships with their parents. These impacts were preceded by other social-emotional impacts (improvements in behavior-hyperactive behavior and total problem behavior, and social skills and positive approaches to learning) in the earlier years. The findings for the 4-year-old cohort are inconsistent with teachers reporting that children in the Head Start group are more shy and socially reticent and have more problems with student and teacher interactions than control group children while their parents are reporting that they are less withdrawn.

    "For the 3-year-old cohort, there were positive favorable impacts on use of time-out and authoritarian parenting at the end of 1st grade and on spanking and time out in kindergarten. These favorable impacts for authoritarian parenting and spanking were also demonstrated in the earlier years. For the 4-year-old cohort, there were no significant parenting practices impacts in kindergarten or 1st grade.

    "Among the 4-year-old cohort, these subgroups include children of parents with mild depressive symptoms, children who were Dual Language Learners, and children with lower cognitive skills. Additionally, Black children experienced favorable impacts in the social-emotional domain at the end of kindergarten.

    "Among the 3-year-old cohort, the subgroups showing favorable impacts include children with special needs, children of parents with no depressive symptoms, children from higher risk households, and children in non-urban settings. In the 3-year-old cohort, there were also several groups with more favorable impacts during the earlier years of the study: these groups included children with lower cognitive skills upon entering Head Start and Dual Language Learners."

    Same here, even the Navy part. Our kids, and grandkids, were all reading before kindergarten. Wife started teaching school the day our youngest started first grade, at the same school. Our kids have college degrees, one is a teacher, the other owns half of an internet business.

    There are those that will do what is needed, and there are those that bring down humanity. It is clear what group we are in.

    This is the goal of the current Republican Party. Rand Paul is very happy.
