Early Literacy is Essential for Opportunity - Learning A-Z Over a career that has spanned 40-plus years, I have worn a variety of hats in the education arena. First as a rural educator, then inner-city urban educator (where most of my teaching years were spent), higher education leader, director of teacher preparation programs, and charter school leadership, among others before landing at my current position in research and evaluation. I worked with students in high poverty areas whose lack of preparedness for post-secondary education led me to research dropout-prevention when writing my doctoral dissertation. Once students left the public school system, graduates or not, they were often destined to perpetuate the cycle of poverty that was in the best interest of no one. Students became disenfranchised, lacking the basic skills to access and be successful in a college setting and more importantly never able to realize their individual potential in any or all aspects of their lives.
