How Best to Achieve School Success


This Policy Brief explores three key factors that policymakers need to take into account in designing school readiness initiatives.

First, it looks at the research and the need to link recent cross-disciplinary discoveries about how children learn to current preschool initiatives.

Second, it confronts the reality of a preschool workforce inadequately trained and paid to work with children in the sophisticated ways that are increasingly expected.

Third, it examines the nationwide absence of comprehensive child care and preschool systems and how that lack compromises school readiness. Finally, it offers policy implications.
