WENATCHEE — In most ways, Readiness to Learn is the perfect program for helping troubled children improve their chances of succeeding in school. So thinks Doug Head, Wenatchee Children’s Home Society administrator. “It’s darn near perfect, except it’s not enough,” said Head. This is the 19th year the Children’s Home Society has worked with local schools to help kids stay in school and be more prepared to learn. The program helps kids who are struggling in school — often due to problems at home — before they develop more serious problems that require more extensive and expensive services.
