Read "Otis" to Children on October 3rd with Jumpstart's Read for the Record

by The Cincinnati Team

Jumpstart's Read for the Record - Oct.3  

Once again the Cincinnati Team is Reading to children during the celebration of Jumpstart's Read for the Record.  We will read "Otis" to the classroom and give each child  their very own book to take home to their family.  For many of the children, this may be the first book they have owned.  If you would like to help us buy books, please send a check to Saralou Durham, 3522 Erie Avenue, Cincinnati, OH  45208.Jumpstart - Read for the Record - Otis

What is Jumpstart?  Jumpstart works toward the day that every child in America enters kindergarten prepared to succeed.  Jumpstart is a national early education organization that recruits and trains college students and community Corps members to serve preschool children in low-income neighborhoods. Their proven curriculum helps children develop the language and literacy skills they need to be ready for kindergarten, setting them on a path to close the achievement gap before it is too late.

What is the Read for the Record?  Jumpstart’s premiere national campaign, Read for the Record, is the one time of the year when millions of individuals come together to celebrate literacy and support Jumpstart in its efforts to promote early childhood education. On October 3rd, people across the country will read the children’s book "Otis" by Loren Long, a local Cincinnati author. 

Each year, the campaign has shone a national spotlight on America's early education achievement gap and literacy needs.  In 2012, 2.3 million people participated in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record.  Do you think we can beat the record?

Why don't you read the book, "Otis" to your children and grandchildren?

"Best Bang for your Buck" List Names University of Cincinnati # 1

by The Cincinnati Team

University of Cincinnati Named Number 1 on "Best Bang for Your Buck" List 

Santa Ono, President of the University of Cincinnati, is justifiably proud of their ranking as Number 1 in the list recently published of the 12 universities where students get the "Best Bang for Their Buck"  The list looked at average student debt upon graduation, starting salaries, tuition and room and board, six-year graduation rates, and the percentage of students that qualify for Pell grants.

Why are they looking at this information?  Based upon the plans developed by President Obama for a collegiate ranking system, distribution of federal education funds will be dependent upon how well universities do in this ranking.  The hope is that this rating system will help control sharp tuition increases.

UC was noted for offering a good return on investment with high graduation rates and decent starting salaries upon graduation.
