National Experts Lead Discussion on Early Childhood Development

Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) October 14, 2013

More than 300 area business, civic, political and education leaders will convene Oct. 29 for a panel discussion on the local economic benefits that can be generated by increased investments in early childhood development and education.

The Ready for School, Ready for Life gathering will feature national childhood development experts David Lawrence, Jr. and Dr. Nathan Fox. Lawrence leads The Childrens Movement of Florida, a campaign aimed at making children a top priority for the state. Fox is a leading developmental psychologist and neuroscientist focused on early childhood brain development at the University of Maryland. Former Governor James B. Hunt, Jr., North Carolinas education governor, will also provide comments on steps our community can take to further economic goals.

Scientific findings show that a critical time to shape productivity is from birth to age five when the brain is developing rapidly, said Susan Schwartz, executive director of The Cemala Foundation, one of the event sponsors. Our economic future depends on providing the right tools for early childhood education to ensure upward mobility in an ever-changing society that is contingent on a highly educated, skilled workforce.

Research on the topic of early childhood education indicates that more than one in every three third grade students cannot read with minimal proficiency and almost half of high school sophomores cannot read at grade level. Quality early childhood education will help close this achievement gap and ultimately save education, social services and criminal justice dollars for the state.

The event will be held from 7:15 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 29 at the Downtown Marriott in Greensboro. It is being sponsored by The Cemala Foundation, the Joseph M. Bryan Foundation of Greater Greensboro, the Greensboro Partnership, Cone Health Foundation, Achieve Guilford and the Guilford County Partnership for Children.

This event will clearly present the evidence about how critical the first 2,000 days of a childs life is to success in school and adulthood, said Ed Kitchen, vice president and COO of the Joseph M. Bryan Foundation of Greater Greensboro. It will also describe practical ways we can help our community enhance the early childhood experience, particularly for at-risk infants and preschoolers.

Robin Saul, president and publisher of the News & Record, added, Investing in a childs early learning environment is one of the highest yielding investments a community leader can make. The payback comes from ensuring the future workforce is poised for readiness and capable of being life-long learners.

About the Ready for School, Ready for Life Event

David Lawrence, Jr. is the former publisher of The Miami Herald who retired to work in the area of early childhood development and school readiness. He now leads The Childrens Movement of Florida, aimed at making children the states top priority for investment and decision making. Lawrence is well known for communicating practical ideas, steps and solutions for businesses, civic leaders, and citizens-at-large to make investments that enhance opportunities for children to succeed in school.

Dr. Nathan Fox is a leading developmental psychologist and neuroscientist interested in the effects of early experiences on brain and behavioral development. He is a member of the Child Mind Institute and Scholar in Residence at the University of Maryland, where he has earned the honor of Distinguished University Professor. For the past 19 years, his research on early brain development has been funded by the National Institute of Health.

Root Law Group Releases Report about Immigration Reform

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 05, 2013

Root Law Group compiled a report about Immigration Reform. This report is created to help people understand complex immigration law concepts in an easy to understand language.

Report has six chapters that cover different parts of Immigration Reform. Six chapters are:

1) Border Security

2) Provisional Immigration Status

3) Skilled Workers

4) Unskilled Workers

5) Employment Immigration

6) Family Immigration

Background information about the Immigration Reform:

On April 16, 2013, the Senate introduced S. 744, the immigration bill that promises comprehensive immigration reform. Currently, it has passed in the Senate and the bill is in the House of Representatives, where it is currently being debated. Below is a summary of the current Senate bill, but the final bill that will hopefully be signed into law may look different.

Brief summary of each chapter:

Chapter 1: Border Security

The first goal of the bill is to strengthen border security. Major benefits to immigrants might be put on hold or delayed until this is achieved. Goals of border security include:

-24-hour surveillance of the border with Mexico, so that 90% of those crossing the border illegally would be caught and turned back;

-a plan to be developed and implemented using drones, additional agents and fencing; and

-additional customs agents to be hired to check those entering the U.S. and make sure they have legal status.

Chapter 2: Provisional Immigration Status

Before becoming lawful permanent resident and citizens, illegal immigrants will be given registered provisional immigration status. An estimated 11 million illegal immigrants living in the U.S. could obtain provisional status as long as they:
