Critical Infrastructure for Children
CIC is a resource for parents, students and educators. The 200+ questions in the book present core information for each of those three groups. The book is a culmination of efforts that began in October of 1997. You can preview Critical Infrastructure for Children on Amazon with the “See Inside” feature.
Example Subject: Job Creation University of Massachusetts at Lowell president Jacqueline Moloney outlined our current situation with skilled labor and manufacturing, when she said;
“The manufacturing industry in Massachusetts is facing a critical shortfall in skilled workers, with jobs currently unfilled and more expected to open up over the next 10 years….over the next decade, nearly 3.5 million manufacturing jobs will likely need to be filled, and the skills gap is expected to result in 2 million of those jobs going unfilled.“
That quote was not speculation on her part; she was quoting page four of this report. Supporting efforts at job creation is one of many reasons why Critical Infrastructure for Children was written.

The Language Guy’s Spanish Learner
I call myself “the Language Guy” because language learning is what I enjoy doing and writing about. After teaching and studying languages intensively for seven years, and casually for another fourteen, I have a little knowledge. Whereas questions 47 to 85 in Critical Infrastructure for Children (above) are strictly about language learning and they highlight some great successes in that field, this little book is for beginners looking to master the basics of Spanish, or for intermediates looking for easy daily review. It is designed to be read out loud. It can act as a support tool for existing Spanish learning programs.
