Invest in Early Childhood Education
Kagan, Sharon Lynn; Reid, Jeanne L.
Phi Delta Kappan, v90 n8 p572-576 Apr 2009
The history of American early education is one of changing roles and goals. As federal engagement in early childhood has shifted in response to social, political, and economic needs, few policy efforts have focused on long-term planning or coordination. The authors identify the appropriate roles of federal, state, and local governments and make 13 recommendations for ways the federal government can develop an excellent, coherent, and equitable system of early childhood education.
