LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

May 1, 2013

Once a trust is broken, it takes a major commitment to fix and I have not seen that commitment to date.
Letter to the Editor:

I believe everyone in Murray County wants quality health care close to home. Until mid January most everyone I know felt pride in our Murray County Memorial Hospital and saw many good things happening. This all came crashing down with what appears to many to be an incredibly poor decision, or at least very poor business practice and policy, by the administration and hospital leadership.

The result left a long time respected provider, an active community member, and his family, with confusion and scars. It seems it has also resulted in the departure of other key staff.

We need to encourage our legislature to fully fund early childhood education scholarships to close the achievement gap and put our youngest children’s needs at the top of our budget list.

To the editor:

Minnesota currently has one of the most daunting school achievement gaps in the nation.

Unfortunately, this unacceptable achievement gap starts well before kindergarten. Today, nearly half of all five year olds in Minnesota arrive at kindergarten not prepared to learn. Research proves that when children are behind at age five they are less likely to ever catch up.

Right now, our legislators have the opportunity to close that gap by providing access to quality early learning programs for all children, regardless of family income or geographic location. Access to quality early learning programs is proven to improve school readiness outcomes for all kids. When kids enter school ready to succeed, they reap the benefits for the rest of their lives and so does our state.Marcia Kunze,

Murray County Early Childhood Initiative
