Principals Decide How to Bless Early Reading Innovations

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 25, 2006 --

Principals have options to lead the engagement of at-risk age 3-6 children. If they do nothing, they risk being challenged by the NCLB measures 4-5 years later. Principals have deep smarts and ability to oversee the prediction of individual success at age 3 to 6. They are ultimately responsible (systemic blame in grades 3-6) for children left behind without the required literacy skills. USA VALUES-CDP has developed donation programs that encourage principals to insist and require giving first things first to the most at-risk children.

The principal's influence is a significant capacity in the battle to keep at-risk children engaged starting at age 3. This emerging requirement is highlighted by the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) published Leading Early Childhood Communities, (2005 NAESP).

Totally unrelated to NAESP, this logic created a jumpstart for funding urban school innovation at and calls for the designated giving of a gift portioned from the economic activity of the private sector. That logic is further supported by material, referenced knowledge and a “giving exchange” for principals, teachers, child care providers, and volunteers at This set-up creates a limited but ultimate stage for principal's leadership in the area of ethics, early reading skills, economics, responsibility, authority, choices, assets, attributes, messages and storytelling.

USA Values – CDP, Character Development Programs promotes truth; 1) The gift of Early Reading Skills (the FIRST value) is required for ALL age 3–6 children before they start kindergarten; 2) This individual gift is the key to opportunity, schools and government will never replace the individual in this effort; 3) The gift is the most effective and lowest cost approach to preparing at-risk children for opportunities; 4) The principal is vested in 100% of the children starting kindergarten ready-to-read.

CDP is a 501(C)(3) business expecting to link families, paid volunteers, early childhood learning and faith-base resources, schools, corporations and agencies to first deliver 100% of the children to be ready-to-read starting in kindergarten.
