Nip the Problem

Why is it so important to nip the problems in your child’s academic career?  Often students are performing below grade level because they never learned a skill or forgot a skill.

It’s important to remember that just because a student knew something last year does not mean he will know the material this year.  Retention is a key aspect of education that no one likes to address.

This is also true for adults.  For example, if an adult obtains a masters degree, will the information be retained if not used and reviewed?

Universities don’t seem to address this issue, since selling more education and filling the seats is a key objective.  American’s need to consider the reality of use it or loose it!
