Kudos to The Arcadian for taking the initiative to address the problems of our school system in DeSoto. I don’t have the quick fix answers that I wish were possible for the educational end of this tragedy, but decades of living experience combined with research done for the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Support Group I have facilitated each month for more than a decade have reinforced the family aspect of this problem.

When you bring a child into the world, that is your number one priority for the next 18-plus years.
