Story of PVofPE-Prek Present Value Reconciled from the Top Down

The value of a positive expectation can be recognized (at least $500,000) from the top down. This value has already been innovated into the private sector economy of any family that can pay for early learning. Requirement is to see the child developing at a reasonable pace with peers as the control.

No disrespect is intended when one concludes from the top down that more study is not required.

The business community understands the PVofPE-Prek investment numbers and how growth and future savings are values. Business understands there is a FTFRTFT requirement to the expectations. The community needs every family and business and non-business organization, including the faith base and the schools to understand FTFRTFT demands reprioritization along the lines of

“OMG- I cannot be a part of leaving $500,000 of possible value behind when it is this simple”

An interesting powerful story that deals with this value is The Street Lawyer by John Grisham, on pages 406 and 425 of the paperback. At least read the end of the story from page 370 because it is much more than a calculation when public perception is added and fingers start pointing at what was done and not done by the strongest for the weakest. It ends with a Good Samaritan reflection but our concentration is on the value of an at risk pre-k child before and after alleged wrongdoing and cascading positioning. We will use bullet points to summarize the story.

  • Very prominent business acts and under values the worth of a mom and 4 children most at risk.
  • A law is broken and other events cascade resulting in their death.
  • The business wanted to value the lives of the preschoolers at $50,000 because the children were going nowhere based on mom’s development. Very likely the children would remain in poverty.
  • The courts in valuing wrongful deaths have said the positive expectation cannot be considered outside of reasonable evidence and tracking toward estimates of realized economic expectation.
  • However, the plaintiff placed a value on each child at $1,000,000 because that is the minimum value the business would ask for, if it were their partner’s or employee’s children.
  • So the courts will project value based on probable expectations evidenced by ……….., to include readiness and very informal comparison to expectations based on peer group.
  • The business knew they would not win the case in the eyes of the public, or a jury and was going to do everything they could to settle. The plaintiff wanted a public trial to increase the settlement value.
  • The case was already being tried in the newspaper and the good name of the business was depreciating as the claim gave rise to negative reports of wrong doing.
  • The business had no defense for not doing what they could have done. They ignored the law and damaged the weak family. The extended family could not be found but it made no difference.
  • The marketed image of the business, its public perception was being damaged anew each day and the powerful owners of the company could do nothing about it. The leverage to make it stop existed in the grassroots not the boardroom.
  • The plaintiff leveraged the grassroots perspective through the press of public opinion.
  • The plaintiff leveraged the perspective of fair and respectful public policy each chance they had.
  • The story case settled at the $1,000,000 per child level, made reasonable with time payments. It triggered the wise old leader of the business to emotionally think about first things first right the first time and act to fill in the gaps they could address with reestablished generosity.

The point we want to make with the story is that the $500,000 PVofPE-Prek is so very reasonable from the top down. Just the emotional and ethical thinking of what can be simply done first things first right the first time for all age 0-6 children should be the thought of the decade.

WHAT CAN BE MORE IMPORTANT THAN POSITIONING FOR THIS EXPECTATION ($500,000) of present value for each and every at risk child (last count 2,000,000 children per year)
