Soroco preschool earns impressive state ranking 22.7.2016 Steamboat Pilot
The Soroco Preschool at Yampa has been recognized by the Colorado Department of Education as a level 4 of 5 childcare facility under the new Colorado Shines rating system. Implemented through the past three years, the rating and improvement system scores licensed childcare providers based on levels of staff training, family engagement, leadership and management and child health promotion, among other factors. Currently, fewer than 700 of the state’s 4,500 licensed programs have earned a ranking of 3, 4 or 5, putting Soroco Preschool at Yampa in at least the top 15 percent of programs, statewide. “We are all very pleased,” Preschool Director Tamara Bereznak told the South Routt Board of Education earlier this week. The South Routt School District took over operation of the Yampa preschool during summer 2015, after previously contracting with the Northwest Colorado Board of Cooperative Educational Services to operate a program using a portion of the building, located at 26 W.

Our country has historically prided itself on being a socially mobile society, where your ability is more important than the race or class you're born into. Indeed, during the three decades after World War II, social mobility increased -- particularly for the  white working class . That mobility became part of our self-identity, especially when juxtaposed with the old "caste societies" of Europe and their static class systems. Today, however, that story has been turned on its head. If you forgot to be born into a wealthy family, you're better off today living in Northern Europe or  Canada , where social safety nets and investments in early childhood education have paid big dividends for ordinary citizens. In fact, Canada now has  three times  the social mobility of the US. Young people in the US face huge inequalities of ...
