The Truth, Without the gift of Early Reading Skills all children are behind before they even start kindergarten.
The Gift, Only an individual gift delivers early reading skills at age 2, 3, 4 and 5. This gift is the key to opportunity. It is society’s best (effective and lowest cost) approach to preparing the most at-risk to want opportunities, choices and engagement.
The Focus, When 100% of the children start kindergarten ready to read English the urban school has resources to meet the larger requirement. K-12 Schools are vested but not funded in the goal of 100% readiness.

Compared this thinking of USA Early Reading Skills Delivered to the real 12 year old creation of overseas literacy and language by John Wood and his organization Room To Read.
Read the Book. Where is the USA outrage for literacy in USA Urban Culture - Communities? They envision a world overseas in which all children can pursue a quality education, reach their full potential and contribute to their community and the world. To achieve this goal, They focus on two areas for the greatest impact: literacy and gender equality in education. They work in collaboration with communities and local governments across Asia and Africa to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children, and support girls to complete secondary school with the life skills they’ll need to succeed in school and beyond. Importantly, each community that benefits from Room to Read’s support is challenged to contribute to the project’s long-term success by donating land, funds or labor.
The Truth about Education Reform - Nothing will reach 100% of the at risk children with ready to read skills if Culture / Community and Districts do not work together with first things first earlier deliveries.
This is asking everyday citizens to vest in reasonable wired outcomes, reach deep if necessary, be creative, and set up some progress to be defined by what our children will accomplish. Speak the truth about the importance of doing first things first and the concept of high quality early education completions – There are constraints in our total education process for the whole of age 0-8 children. The concept of first things first as an education issue is missing because…see list. The concept is simple, important but not popular. This is a costly miss by our education experts, reporters and commentators . USA VALUES finds it difficult to write and say this in an acceptable voice to the education sector.
At least 44 clouds removed with strategies of ERSD-RA, PVofPE-Prek, FTFRTFT, New Money, Compassion, School District Innovation, Culture-Community Leadership
The war on poverty and the education gaps did not mobilize the public economic, education, emotions and ethic to the concept of individual literacy is freedom. Every mother in the nation has to really pay attention to the first 6 years of the child’s life (0-6) or else the child will be behind and at risk. Times have changed. Washington D.C. and states have actually put real solutions for the poor most at risk, because of work that is not first things first (FTF). They also have left enough money in the system to fix individual literacy FTF but it is not attached to the right attitude. The Culture / Community, for at risk mother, has no choice but to oversee a new concept of early reading readiness for mother and child. If she cannot do it, she must be given no choice but compassionate help. Those overseeing or talking reforms know this, but…
If you believe individualism is important to the future of the USA; you already know it will need to be rebuilt for our most at risk population by the middle, left and right (everyone). One of the ends in mind at age 7 is based on age 0-6 early literacy. It is a short circuit to ask our at risk population to recreate our future with individualism they do not understand or appreciate.
Progressives and conservatives are advancing concepts that generally do not rely on doing first things first right the first time (FTFRTFT). BIG MISS FOR THE BOOKENDS! The middle wants to care, but the end in mind has to be practical. USA VALUES, LLC is a concept that would take everything being created by all of society on the input to age 0-6 at risk children and mix it with several constraints including 100% to be certain the outcomes meet the new local requirements.
St Paul School District and others generate many combinations of clips, articles, memos, emails and examples of Doing Everything but First Things First in spite of what the district knows about Early Reading Skills. Doing first things first for the most at risk child is really hard work and slightly intrusive.
Have you ever registered in your life that attitude makes the difference. And, that recognizing first things first while known is hard to put in place in the world of applied knowledge, emotions, actual activity, and budgets. School District Powers have many reasons for not getting this straight or diluting the concept of first things first. It is difficult work to say the least about the challenge.
It is not a stretch to think that the most at risk in our nation have had life made more difficult because of globalization. “Take this job and ship it” Sen. Byron L. Dorgan. The digitization of information and communications makes borders less and less significant with the best of the best in competition. The understanding that our major companies driven by a global dollar have no choice (obligated) to seek the opportunities in the new worldwide economy growing even more so in the late 90’s to present.
The Lexus and the Olive Tree, Even before "globalization", the fall of the Berlin Wall and the USA projection in the third world of “literacy is freedom” by the State Department along with the presence of the worldwide USA Military gave rise to the security for massive investment in growth overseas and the outsourcing of jobs for key functions and production capabilities supporting the Fortune 2500 companies’ growth.
The Critical Chain is actually a text book within a novel. The text book is used to relate the theory of constraints to project management in organizations with hundreds of projects open at any one time.
If you a reformer with the education gap in focus looking for the money to do first things first this book and The Goal are a must read. There are thousands of process and project engineers ready to help with the correlation to a school district and building. The Critical Chain explains lost time (money), is structured into a project of dependent events and how it can be removed with the science of constraint management. This is rich, reformers will find answers for children, teachers and parents in the concepts.
The concept behind this being Socratic reaches to keeping a present value of positive expectation simple. The value is required to generate a new industry around the 100% delivery of at risk children to kindergarten. The expectation is just that. And is just that simple.
If you are effective and know the truth behind the tweets you are going to make certain your children are ready for kindergarten. You have already found a way to make that investment. You know if you don’t you are pitting them against the odds and putting them at high risk. You don’t need longitude studies to calculate the ROI, you and your family will not take the risk.. This is like 20 years ago when you saw the desk top computer, or 10 years ago when you saw the LeapPad. And today when you see the mobile computing and communicating. You and your family will not take the risk.
Interestingly it describes the goal in a generic sense of more throughput, less in process risk and clutter, and less total cost of the process. It debunks cost accounting as deceptive estimates for the federal government's definition of inventory and challenges both manufacturing and service organizations to see throughput as the goal and the constraints defined by operating process bottlenecks and policy bottlenecks.
Every service business (and school) has a bottleneck, has dependent events and has variability of each input in terms of normal deviation, special deviation and special effort costs. The walk in the woods almost perfectly explains why every child (100%) must start ready and must stay proficient in front of the next step. Why not fight the proficiency battle right on the spot? How can it be a teacher issue before it is a child issue required for the next step?
It was stated the following habits make an individual effective in the personal life and the organizational life. We are dealing with only the first three plus the paradigm. 1. Be proactive and Socratic. 2. Begin with the end in mind. 3. Put first things first.
Before we start thinking and working “It is helpful to understand the need for a new level of thinking because the significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them.” Albert Einstein and Stephen Covey (on page 42) suggests we look for a new paradigm. Certainly this is relevant looking back on 150 years of pain because the literacy levels created have fallen far short of the growth in literacy required.
Schools represent processes of dependent events making the 80 /20 rule generally inapplicable and the need to do effect -- cause-- effect thinking at every step of reform.
This book and The Goal by E. Goldratt show how not defining the first things first bottleneck, lost time because of the quality in the bottleneck, wasted time waiting for the bottleneck and variable dependent events, cause excess costs that are not even seen by system participants. It will show you how total time is permanently lost (forever) whenever a delay is encountered and how the process throughput is limited in total to the throughput through the one or two real bottlenecks. The book’s critical message is covered in only 76 pages.
There is something so very basic in her explanation of the absorbent mind; it is both first thing first and right the first time advice for the mother of the individual child and the society that wants to grow beyond its present adult limits.
The child is wired to learn language between the ages of 0-6, less wired after that. Wired means something inside the mind is looking to be completed and will draw in, for life, what is presented. Without the best first things first input from sound and voice, hands and movement our expectations will not be fulfilled. There are scientific principles in play that cannot be avoided. Few in our world see and trumpet the awesome responsibility of mother and father before the age of six for the life of the child’s next 80 years.
The digital age has caused the ability to define requirements precisely, making a “One Size Fits One” impression on the process. No longer does a child go into kindergarten without a definition of what the child knows. Parents of the children not at risk know their child will learn more if they are ready. This makes for difference per child at age 6 created within each child at age 3 or before.
This book details 10 things the child generically wants, often through the voice of mom because the pressure to be ready is so very real. But then, often mom might not be aware or unable to help herself and her child -- making not being ready a huge risk for the child, mom, the teacher, the school and the district. But we know the difference is at the per child level and we know the gap is the smallest it can possibly be at the start.
This is a generic truth. This makes too much sense, in a continuous process of dependent events (like education). The savings from being without exception going into the next step without delay would yield huge returns in education. In order to see this (imagine), it might take all of eight hours of review. Please bear with it.
This book details how quality is free by managing four basic absolutes of common sense. You would think this knowledge would be older than 1979 but that is when it starting coming together for service processes. Digital processes of the total needed to close in on the total scope with some discipline to be able to see the opportunity to fix exceptions within the process without delay and testing within a batch of one.
USA VALUES Socratic Thinking -- Dollars and Sense-- A Review of Economic Analyses of Pre-K — Albert Wat, Pre-k Now
This is Socratic support for the 100 words making up the Public Service Message of USA VALUES, LLC. When 100% of the children start kindergarten ready to read English the urban school has excess resources to meet the larger requirement. K-12 Schools are vested but not funded in the goal of 100% readiness. The booklet is complicated but the concept is promotional on the basis of the general facts at the grassroot individual and local economy levels with added thinking.
This booklet details what is available to the USA if it would align the true requirements of Pre-k with K-12 and figure out the projected ROI from high quality continuous improvement for the school district. It should see business aligned (self interest) with everyone’s courage, discipline, commitment to innovate and save inside the mother lode of public education spending. There are demonstrations to this effect that can be viewed and visited as you speak.
USA VALUES Socratic Thinking -- Adjust Fire Transforming to Win in Iraq – Lt. Col. Michael A. Baumann (USA,Ret)
This is Socratic support for the 100 words making up the Public Service Message of USA VALUES. It is reflected upon to adjust our urban firepower in a transformation that leaves no child behind. The reason this book hits the Socratic levers is it shows the emotion, character, level of Investment and risk the USA is willing to take (spend) creating a free world (safe and secure) outside the USA borders.
This book details what the US Army was willing to do, on the fly to transform on the ground forces from unsuited Field Artillery to Infantry to fight urban insurgency without testing and experience; resulting in death and permanent injury to many. The ability to make this transition is taken for granted by the USA citizen who knows little about an organization where real and at times ultimate commitment and discipline is taken for granted. But at home in the USA? Who is asking for the same level of commitment and discipline to make certain the at risk child is not left behind dead to the opportunity around them. Who is heading up the commitment so they can see the opportunity just beyond the mythical suburban six mile road. Where is the surge to put the attitude and effort into these at risk children first thing first for the highest individual return possible.
This is Socratic support for the 100 words making up the Public Service Message of USA VALUES, LLC. Emotionally, our past investments in individual freedom should show a ROI. What is left to do is nothing compared to what is already done. Our expectations should be high if we just do first things first.
This book pictures the level of Investment the USA is willing to make and promote the creation of a free world. It documents the simple messages and propaganda needed to conduct the war. The production needed to defeat the enemy on two fronts can hardly be imagined. Both its magnitude and its timing for the effect overseas was staggering……. Again, over 500,000 American Soldiers dead. The civilian life turned to tremendous prosperity based on WORK during and after the war. Nobody disputes the highly effective citizen and society that won the wars in 1945. ………Page 150 reflects the USA story by posters. Commitment and talking about a focus to a result in a time period turned a 46.5 million civilian person workforce into 55 million civilians at work by 1945 with the military being additional and numbered at 11 million.
This is Socratic support for the 100 words making up the Public Service Message of USA VALUES, LLC. Emotionally, we want it our past investments (blood and money) in individual freedom to become the basic emotion in our investment in opportunity for everyone right here in the USA, and to see what is left to do is nothing compared to what is already done but not completed...
A short 150 years ago there was “nothing civil about the civil war”. Our nation invested in itself with 620,000 American Soldiers dead, 50,000 civilian casualties and complete economic devastation of the southern states. This reset the definition of individual rights and opportunity. Without Lincoln's leadership the reset has not been completed.

Cling to the light of the future. Opposite 7 deadly sins. This is not meant to be printed unless used as the opposite of individual positive expectations for our children.
