ELEVATING EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION: The Benefits of Quality Education and How to Make it Accessible to All Children
Aired Wednesday, May 13, 2020
With policymakers paying increased attention to the importance of early education for all young children, HighScope and Detroit Public TV are partnered in this important livestream event. The virtual conversation between HighScope’s Chief Research Innovation Officer Iheoma U. Iruka, PhD, and Stacey Abrams, political leader and New York Times bestselling author, was moderated by Chastity Pratt, a fellow at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University.
This virtual conversation explored:
- The importance of high-quality early childhood education to economic prosperity in the United States and what policymakers can do to create a cohesive education system for all young children.
- How citizens can engage with local and federal policymakers to address the issue of inadequate compensation for early childhood professionals.
- How to provide equitable access to education for young children from underserved, low-income, and ethnic minority families and communities.
Thanks you for the information, that is important for all.
It was the very interesting and useful training for all Preschool teachers.
Conversations were very useful and heart warming. and many important information
This video is very useful for all early childhood educators. I am very appreciating you that you mention the value of all teachers and Teacher Assistants and support them.
Thank you so much for you all educators stands for us.
Great information about how early education affects every community!
Totally agree about situations with ECE .More training with Special Ed. And Behavior problems…Another big big training should be Autism…teachers get no training even though they identify the problem in their classroom….
I totally agree with your comments on the degree of training , one should have to teach young children. Teacher who earn an CDA or Associates in early child hood education will be able to adapt to the children needs and make accommodations for delay learners. Another major issue is diversity in the classroom and making sure teacher understands and appreciate different culture. A lot of teacher struggles with this issue.
This presentation was very informative and the presenters were obvious very knowledgable about the information they spoke about.
As an Early childhood teacher I first hand know and see the importance of education in the early years of a child’s life. I was anticipating this broadcast the outcome was rewarding.
Thank you so much for reminding us how important Education is during the COVID-19 . And trying to keep our Families involved during the difficult time. I feel that we have many families that need help. And they need to know that there are people that Care.
This was a very good training and lots of important information. We really have to make sure we help our children and their families.
