Every year in Minnesota, thousands of the state's children enter school unprepared for kindergarten. And every year, the cost to the K-12 system of those children not being ready is about $113 million, according to a study released Monday. From lost revenue after students drop out to increased safety and special education costs, the system takes a hit when students aren't ready for school, according to Robert Chase of Wilder Research, which released the study.
