An estimated one in five school-age children in the United States speaks a language other than English in the home, and roughly half of these children are emerging bilingual students or English learners (ELs) when they enter school.

With most 4 year olds in the United States now in center-based early care, the need for aligning instruction from preschool through the early grades (PK-3) has become more pressing.

Bridgman, Anne – Society for Research in Child Development, 2017

Tseng, Vivian; Easton, John Q.; Supplee, Lauren H. – Society for Research in Child Development, 2017
People have long bemoaned the silos of research and practice. Researchers express frustration that practitioners do not use or misuse research.

Research-Practice Partnerships (RPPs) across the country are seeking to undo these patterns.…

In this paper, we call attention to the need to expand existing efforts and to develop policies, programs, and best practices in the United States designed to support parents at risk and promote parenting competence. Despite the existence of some services offered to parents of children at risk due to developmental delay or at economic risk, the…

School corporal punishment is currently legal in 19 states, and over 160,000 children in these states are subject to corporal punishment in schools each year. Given that the use of school corporal punishment is heavily concentrated in Southern states, and that the federal government has not included corporal punishment in its recent initiatives…
