SERVE, the Southeastern Regional Vision for Education, is a consortium of educational organizations whose mission is to promote and support the continual improvement of educational opportunities for all learners in the Southeast United States; SERVE is one of the ten Regional Education Laboratories funded by the U.S. Department of Education. In the fall of 1997, SERVE and the National Center for Early Development & Learning (NCEDL) held a conference in Fort Mill, South Carolina, the goal of which was to develop a model conference to help state policymakers turn research into policy and policy into practice. This booklet summarizes the proceedings of this conference. The booklet's contents are: (1) "Conference Summary"; (2) "Conference Background"; (3) "The Conference: Day 1," which covered research on quality early childhood programs, defining quality, and policy barriers to quality; (4) "The Conference: Day 2," which covered policy options for addressing barriers to quality; (5) "Conference Evaluation"; and (6) "Follow-Up Efforts." The booklet also contains the conference agenda, a list of participants, and information about SERVE and ordering SERVE publications. (EV)
