readings: the income gap & early literacy

As Plutarch wrote almost 2000 years ago, quotes Robert H. Frank in this chock-full piece on the increasing income gap, "An imbalance between rich and poor is the oldest and most fatal ailment of all republics."

Was talking to bigfinedaddy about this issue a bit yesterday. But more often today I've been thinking of her talk of early literacy. She'd been reading of possible damage we do by inculcating kids in the world of letters and such so early in their lives. Nosing around to read about it myself (with cues of Swedish law & the Waldorf Schools), I came across this issue (.pdf) of Waldorfy research/writing on the subject, much of it from a conference on "The Push for Early Childhood Literacy." Innarestin' stuff.
