Early-childhood learning plays an important role in a child’s development, but what once focused mostly on play and relationship building has evolved into a more academic-focused experience. What have we learned from this development? And what has the pandemic meant for early-childhood learning more generally?
Join Education Week Opinion contributor and blogger Peter DeWitt as he sits down with Rae Pica, an author and educator, and Steven Barnett, a professor and the co-founder of the National Institute for Early Education Research, for a lively discussion about what new developments in early-childhood education mean for school and district leaders.
