"Mind in the Making" Community Forum on Wednesday, May 31st

Mind in the Making

Children are born learning, with a fire in their eyes for learning, and with tremendous potential. But gaps, the achievement gap and the opportunity gap, emerge as early as infancy and continue to widen as children grow. The fire for learning dims for too many children. In addition to a drop-out-of-school problem, the US has a drop-out-of-learning problem.

On Wednesday, May 31st at 10:00am, a community forum will be held to learn about an unprecedented effort to share the science of children's learning with the public and to create action projects based on the science. Later in the year, 30 people from the community will attend a three day Training Institute to be trained in how to offer "Mind in the Making" training to other parents and professionals throughout the community.
