I was especially interested in chapter 6 where it talked about the Impact of the Earliest Years on Student Success. It's mind boggling to think that what we've always known (talking to infants is critical to their later development) has such an impact on their education performance. It was also good for me to hear the correlation between the child's success and how it relates to their self esteem as they enter and then progress through their schooling. This lead me to many internal discussions on how we get this information to young parents and how the disruptinve concepts could be used to this end.
