Problem of literacy differences between the rich and poor. How to close the gap.
My subject is closing the educational gap between the rich and poor.
That gap consists of children of the poor reading about one hundred thousands words per year versus the rich children reading about ten million and upwards to fifty million words per year. Also, in the household in the children of the poor are hearing about six hundred words in a forty minute period versus twenty seven hundred words in a forty minute period. So I suggest, one, that if you want to close the gap, you have to begin in the preschool years. A child will develop fifty percent of their learning ability from birth to age four. So, if you start reading to your children, singing to the children, showing them pictures, colorful pictures, then that will help closing the gap.
