National League of Cities Education Alignment for Young Children Case Studies

Report
YEF Institute
April 2, 2012
 
According to the introduction of this report, “Early childhood investments are the starting place for a high-quality, aligned system of pre-K-16 education, providing the necessary skills to allow all children to succeed throughout their schooling.

Yet the benefits of a high-quality early education can dissipate if these programs are not designed to meet criteria or standards for school readiness within the public schools or if the child transitions into an elementary school that does not adequately support their development.” This report covers five case studies who are working to create a seamless educational pipeline for the 0-8 age group.
