Today Paul Pepper visits with CRYSTAL KRONER about Cradle to Career Alliance, a non-profit that brings together community leaders and Boone County's six school districts. Crystal says that each year, six milestones (such as kindergarten-readiness) are set based on local educational data. When there are noticeable achievement gaps, 'action teams' are formed to try and come up with solutions. And it's not just about what happens in the classroom. "There are so many factors involved in children's educational success that happen way before they're getting into school buildings." February 16, 2018
