LS Director Letter: February 10
Posted 02/10/2017 10:00AM

Dear Lower School Parents, 

It has been a busy week in the Lower School!  We hosted a New Parent Luncheon on Monday, we continued the book club with Catherine Steiner-Adair’s book The Big Disconnect, we held the Parents’ Association meeting and the Lower School Parent Advisory meeting, and we welcomed a number of visitors.  

Also this week, I had the privilege of attending a forum about the economics of early childhood investment called Kidonomics, hosted by the Institute for Emerging Issues at NC State University.  Along with current and former governors, scientists, researchers, health care professionals, business leaders, economists and educators, Crissy Anderson, Emilee Transou, Randy Doss and I discussed the impact of investing in early education.  The good news is that you have made an excellent choice for both your children and for the greater community by making education a priority.  Bravo!

One of the most profound takeaways for me was that there is both a business case and a brain case for investing in education.  The business case clearly demonstrates that there is an increasing gap between the skills businesses need and those currently available. There aren’t nearly enough people in the work force who can think critically, problem solve at an increasing pace and collaborate with diverse colleagues.  There is also a quantifiable benefit to individuals who invest in early education to the tune of about a seven dollar return for each dollar spent.  The brain case argues that there are optimal windows during which important sensory, language and higher cognitive neural circuits are established, and those windows are when children are young.  

Thank you for trusting us with your children during this critical developmental period.  The research proves you won’t regret it!
Next week we will celebrate the 100th day of school, and we will cheer on the Bengals at the state playoffs for wresting and basketball. 

Warm regards,

Gillian S. Goodman, M.Ed., M.B.A.
Lower School Director
