Eyes on the Early Years
Early childhood education is an important focus of EdSource’s work. We explore the challenges facing California’s youngest learners — and those responsible for educating them.
Subscribe to this monthly newsletter in which we share new reports and highlight important research and stories about children from infancy to age eight.
Please send questions, comments and suggestions to Zaidee Stavely, early education reporter, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The newsletter is underwritten by the Heising-Simons Foundation.
