    Keep your eye on what will come out of Mayor Taveras’ Children and Youth Cabinet. Work now being done may help those interested in real education reform understand how important the first 1000 days of life are to school performance. Pilot efforts in CF, Pawtucket and Olneyville are promising. As long as RI policy continues to concentrate and isolate poor, single, uneducated new mothers and infants in toxic and hostile urban neighborhoods, urban school teachers in primary grades will be fighting a losing battle. More investment in testing and accountability will launch careers of people like Gist and her wannabees, but little else. Cherry-picking Mayoral Academies and charter movement will continue to drain resources away from investment in  early care and education where the true problem exists.
