Quality Counts Report Surveys Early-Learning Landscape

Quality-Counts-Cover-Early-Education-Facebook.jpgQuality early-childhood education has been on the top of the policy agenda around the country, and Education Week is using this year's Quality Counts report—"Preparing to Launch: Early Childhood's Academic Countdown"—to explore just how states are measuring up against each other, and to tell the stories behind the numbers. The special issue was published Jan. 8. 

And that's just a sample of all you'll find in this issue. Read, learn, discuss, and let's continue the conversation.
