The Hechinger Report
Is the power of parent talk enough to close the school readiness divide?
Sarah-Jane Davies's insight:

Education does not begin at school level. Education starts as soon as a child is born. Suskind's method of teaching a child over 300 million words is very effective.  Children can only become smart if their parents speak to them constantly. This occurs because children will then learn how to communicate and listen. These are fundamental aspects of education. It is also important that parents  speak to their child as if they were an adult. Therefore the child will be able to learn difficult words at a much easier and faster rate.
