From the Pre-K Now Team

With the pending reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) underway, our need for laser focus to ensure a pre-k policy win for young children is more important now than ever before. It’s time to reflect in law what research has said for years – that high-quality pre-kindergarten saves taxpayers money; improves children’s cognitive social and emotional skills; decreases the need for K-12 grade retention and special education services; and helps to close the achievement gap.

When Inside Pre-K launched, there were very few forums on early education. Thanks to many of you, there are now dozens of bloggers who track policy advances, share classroom best practices, and provide regular analysis of the early education field. Hundreds of tweets each day on #prek and #ece appear on Twitter. John, Sophia, and others helped inspire substantive, important conversations about early learning via new media tools. Although Inside Pre-K is no longer active, there are many more sites providing great content, including:

ECE Policy Matters

Inside Pre-K will remain online to be referenced throughout the life of Pew’s Pre-K Now campaign. We are grateful for the work of our past and present bloggers – both in their capacity as writers and pre-k educators – and for your insightful comments and loyal readership through the years.
