The Early and Elementary Education Policy unit at New America is hosting a panel event on the release of my new study, “All Children Learn and Thrive: Building First 10 Schools and Communities.” The live-streamed event will take place in Washington, DC on April 30.
Laura Bornfreund of New America is organizing the event and will introduce the panel, which will be moderated by Christina Samuels of Education Week. Deborah Stipek (Stanford University) and Kwesi Rollins (Institute for Education Leadership) will provide expert commentary on the study. Three leaders from communities described in the report will share their experiences implementing innovative initiatives to improve teaching, learning, and care throughout the first decade of children’s lives:
- Brooke Chilton-Timmons
Youth and Families Services Division, SUN Service System, Multnomah County, Oregon
- Lei-Anne Ellis
Cambridge Birth–3rd Grade Partnership, Cambridge Public Schools, Massachusetts
- Criselda Lopez Anderson
Buffett Early Childhood Institute, Omaha, Nebraska
