Early Childhood Education
The importance of early childhood experiences to school readiness and long-term educational performance levels is generally accepted and expansion of publicly-supported pre-K has been proposed recently at both the federal and state levels. Locally there are many iniatives focusing on early childhool education and literacy improvement. The purpose of the study is to help survey the current early childhood education landscape in Onondaga County, assess the concerns and challenges, and consider how we could more effectively deploy our existing resources in a way geared toward the goal that all children enter school ready to learn.
