A Community Education Report said 53 percent of children
entering kindergarten in Coconino
County are not ready for
school, and it said that has significant implications for future educational
achievement. In response, the county's superintendent of schools has started a parenting college.
The Arizona Daily Sun said the
free Parenting College will start this fall and will be
open to expectant parents or parents of children with kids 5 years old or
younger. Classes will include discussions on brain development, discipline,
safety and quality child care.
