American students are falling behind students in countries who have shorter summers because of year-round education. In a recent study of 34 countries, done by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, 15-year-old Americans were positioned 14th in reading, 17th in science, and 25th in math (Granderson). American students are falling behind in their studies in comparison to other countries. Higher test scores from year-round schooling will benefit not only the students but the economy. The U.S. could potentially “gain $41 over the lifetime of the generation born in 2010” if in the next 20 years if students improve their score in reading, math, and science by 25 points.

The terms, “neonatology and neonatologist were first introduced in 1960” (Philip 799). Since that time an “increasing number of pediatricians have devoted themselves to full-time neonatology;” however, this specialized treatment evolved slowly. Prior to this era, most care of the newborn child was
