Event Description

On Wednesday, October 26, Princeton University and the Brookings Institution released the latest issue of The Future of Children—a journal that promotes effective, evidence-based policies and programs for children—which examines the effectiveness of pre-K education. At the event, journal co-editor Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, a professor at Columbia University, presented an overview of the volume and Ron Haskins of Brookings reviewed a policy brief about the controversy caused by the Tennessee results. Following these presentations, a panel of experts discussed the implications of the Tennessee results for preschool policy and research.
