Ready for School, Ready for Life

in collaboration with
The Honorable Bob Dold (R-10th) and The Honorable Dan Lipinski (D-3rd) of Illinois

Over the years, many efforts have been made to improve early-learning environments as a means to boost Americans’ job and life prospects. Several new studies are fueling thought-provoking ideas as to what policymakers, parents, and researchers should consider when retooling early-education policies. Join our four experts as they discuss some of this new evidence and what it means for program design and implementation.
