Inequality has dramatically increased in America, with few solutions on the horizon. Serious social inequalities persist. For example, the 14 richest Americans earned enough money from their investments in 2015 to hire two million preschool teachers (while the USA ranks low among developed countries in preschool enrollment). Following the Great Recession, the richest one percent took 116 percent of the new income gains, a statistic caused by so many middle-class Americans moving backward, many losing investments in property and experiencing interruptions in work. Author Paul Buchheit looks hopefully to solutions in a book that vividly portrays the rapidly changing inequality of American society. More Americans have become 'disposable' as middle-class jobs have disappeared at an alarming rate. Buchheit presents innovative proposals that could quickly begin to reverse these trends, including a guaranteed basic income drawn from new revenues, such as a Financial Speculation Tax and a Carbon Tax. Discussing the challenges and obstacles to such measures, he finds optimism in past successes in American history. Ideal for classroom assignment, the book uniquely pairs historical events with current, real-life struggles faced by citizens, pointing to measures that can improve personal and social well-being and trust in government.

World over children's enrollment and grade retention in preschool has been debated quite a lot. So far this has necessitated many studies to answer questions such as: What is the right age to enroll children for preschool care? What experiences should they be exposed to which are developmentally appropriate? Once children are in such centers, should they be subjected to grade retention or not? The many questions may not be adequately answered unless factors behind low enrollment and grade retention are explored scientifically. Most disturbed and troubled are the researchers, educationist, childcare workers, policy makers and teachers. This work presents reliable and elaborate findings documented as a result of research. Specific reference is on how parents socioeconomic status influence enrollment and retention of children in Early Childhood Education Centers.
