If you've got a 20-year-old going to (Central Oregon Community College) and they want to be independent but live at home and get the benefits of mom and dad, it's another option. They don't have to put their kid in an apartment and pay for that.

I have the students for six hours a day. The community has them for 18 hours, plus prenatal and early childhood. I don't believe the schools create (the achievement gap), but our responsibility is not to add to it. We won't eliminate the gap until the community makes education a priority, but the schools can't wait for the community to do its part.
