Two Chicago Heavy Hitters Pair Up on Birth-to-College

The University of Chicago's Urban Education Institute and the Ounce of Prevention Fund are partnering to build a birth-to-college pathway that will not only serve a group of children and families, but also build connections among teachers and help inform policy.

Here's a short (six-minute) video about the project:
