Speaking of Differences.
Chance, Paul
Phi Delta Kappan, v78 n7 p506-07 Mar 1997
By the time many poor children enter school, the best educators can do is prepare them for nonexistent unskilled jobs. Remedial programs cannot compensate for deficiencies in early intellectual development. A study involving 42 families showed that well-educated mothers spoke more to their 3-year-olds, did more explaining, asked more questions, and provided more feedback. These kids performed better on IQ tests. (MLH)
