Sponsored by CEELO, with Dr. Steven Barnett, Principal Investigator of CEELO and Director of the National Institute for Early Education Research (NIEER), Dr. Milagros Nores, Associate Director of Research at NIEER, and David Johns, Executive Director of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans. The webinar, held August 2013, shares highlights from the national data, including trends over the past 10 years; takes a closer look at states with high minority populations, noting those that are making progress and states that are falling behind in efforts to increase access to high quality preschool for vulnerable children; and, discusses policy recommendations for State Education Agency and early childhood leaders to ensure that all children have access to high quality preschool.
