The moms and dads of two-dozen five year olds sat on long green benches in an elementary school cafeteria in North Stockton. In front of them was a large cardboard box covered in blue butcher paper with “2013-14 Kindergarten” printed on the side. Inside were the names of 230 children.

There was little conversation as the minutes ticked toward 9 a.m. when a volunteer would begin to call out names. A class list printed on five huge sheets of paper was tacked on the far wall.
