About HALF of those surveyed are not ready (orange+ yellow) in some key areas. Further, 37 (or 26%) are not ready in ALL 5 key areas.
If Neighborhood 5 was a kindergarten classroom of 22, a teacher would be challenged to teach 11 children who are NOT READY (orange+ yellow).
Of the 37 students not ready in ALL 5 areas, these are the key areas they struggle in the most.

You can help as your child’s first teacher by reducing screen time, talking while shopping, and singing songs.
