Last week, innovators from around the country gathered in Seattle, Washington to attend the first-ever Early Childhood Innovation Summit. Head Start began as an innovative experiment 50 years ago and, in that spirit, early childhood education leaders across the country are continuing to find innovative ways to better serve their communities.
The world of early childhood education is much talked about these days, but it’s not always well-understood. Sometimes it may seem like there are more research articles on preschool than there are four-year-olds in classrooms. No matter your level of experience in the field, the sheer amount of research out there can be overwhelming.
When Head Start was created in 1965 as a part of President Johnson’s War on Poverty, American society was in the beginning of a period of unrest and polarization not seen since the Civil War. And watching this election, it has felt like we are moving very close to that point again - the only thing that’s clear is that there is still not much that we can all agree on.
