With the arrival of the new federal competition, Race to the Top – Early Learning Challenge, early childhood programs are finally getting a seat at the table in conversations about education reform. This webinar will answer what everyone wants to know: Which states have a shot at winning a grant? What kinds of changes will this program spur? Will the promise of the program — the inclusion of more disadvantaged children in high-quality programs — be realized?
In this webinar, we’ll walk you through:
• how the program works
• provide some informed speculation on which states may be best positioned to win grants
• explain how the Early Learning Challenge may affect what teachers and providers do on a day to day basis in their classrooms
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
