A big gap in governor-elect Gavin Newsom’s goal of a cradle-to-career education system is the lack of quality preschool for all children. Join EdSource for a live webinar on Monday, Dec. 10 from 11 am to noon to explore what must be done to fill this gap.
Deborah Stipek, a professor at Stanford, and Beth Meloy, an early childhood expert at the Learning Policy Institute will provide the California context; Ellen Frede, a professor at Rutgers University, will explain how New Jersey went about piecing together preschool programs, and early education providers, Superintendent Yolanda Valdez of Cutler-Orosi Unified in Tulare County and Beatriz Leyva-Cutler, Executive Director of The Bay Area Hispano Institute for Advancement, Inc. (BAHIA), will discuss how they have expanded and improved the quality of their programs.
There will be time for a Q and A with the audience.
The webinar, part of an ongoing series of deeper dives into the Getting Down to Facts research released earlier this year, is co-sponsored by Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE) and the Learning Policy Institute.
