Young fives or developmental kindergarten programs cost state money
And for $127 million, that expert told French, hiring one-on-one tutors for each of those students would yield a greater long-term benefit. 

In southeast Michigan, two-year kindergartners tend to be concentrated in suburban districts that are middle class or affluent, and mostly white: Grosse Pointe, Livonia, West Bloomfield, Okemos, Ann Arbor. 

In other words, it's the folks with the most resources and most advantages finding another way to wheedle even more out of a system that already tilts in their favor, on the public dime.

The Lesson to Unlearn
The most damaging thing you learned in school wasn't something you learned in any specific class. It was learning to get good grades.

When I was in college, a particularly earnest philosophy grad student once told me that he never cared what grade he got in a class, only what he learned in it. This stuck in my mind because it was the only time I ever heard anyone say such a thing.

For me, as for most students, the measurement of what I was learning completely dominated actual learning in college. I was fairly earnest; I was genuinely interested in most of the classes I took, and I worked hard. And yet I worked by far the hardest when I was studying for a test.

In theory, tests are merely what their name implies: tests of what you've learned in the class. In theory you shouldn't have to prepare for a test in a class any more than you have to prepare for a blood test. In theory you learn from taking the class, from going to the lectures and doing the reading and/or assignments, and the test that comes afterward merely measures how well you learned.
