Delaware is one of only 2 states nationally to win a federal Race to the Top, Early Learning Challenge Grant, and a competitive Maternal, Infant, and Early Childhood Home Visiting program grant. This shows that--contrary to the rhetoric you sometimes hear in education debates--a state can simultaneously lead on both early childhood and K-12 reform. It also means Delaware has a unique opportunity to tie all these pieces together to create a truly seamless early childhood through high school learning experience for children. Why should Delaware do that, and what does it need to do to make that a reality? Check out this piece I wrote to find out.
