Politics of Pre-K – great intro to examining research, policies and politics behind early education

Hello – this course is being offered on Thursdays from 4:30 – 6:50 and is open to graduate students and undergraduates!  We will look at both the public policies and politics behind the expansion of high quality early education. Utilizing lecture, discussion, and interactive exercises we will look at the latest research, policy conversations, and political strategies to ensure every child starts school ready to learn.

We also hope to have a number of guest speakers either in person or via Skype and are planning on taking part in two advocacy days in Olympia. While we will address some historical background this class we will primarily focus on the latest proposals, legislation, and efforts in Washington DC and in Olympia.
