Fascinating guy. Thanks for sharing this, applegrove.

I wish there more people like him - and that those who think like him could get elected and successfully enact programs like it all over the country.


Rosen developed a program that costs about $7,400 per student per year. That’s about what states with good pre-K programs spend.

Florida ranks 41st in per pupil spending.

If Rosen were his own state, he’d rank 10th.

Florida’s pre-K program pays for three hours of care and learning a day. Rosen kids can learn all day — and not just their ABC’s and 123’s, but all the basic building blocks of life: How to follow instructions, relate with other kids, use manners and think for themselves. They learn how to learn.

Rosen’s approach is better. Take it from Charles Dziuban, the director of UCF’s Research Initiative for Teaching Effectiveness, who bubbles with enthusiasm when he talks about studies that show Rosen’s Tangelo grads from years ago make more money and do better in life than other kids.

It was impossible to pick an excerpt that fully covers the article's contents - it's well worth reading the whole thing.
