Proceedings from a Working Meeting on School Readiness Research: Guiding the Synthesis of Early Childhood Research. Emerging Federal Research as a Source for New Evidence Concerning PD

12/15/2009

In the early 2000s, several federal agencies funded research aimed at promoting childrens school readiness. The four sets of projects (Preschool Curriculum Evaluation Research Grants program (PCER), the Interagency School Readiness Consortium (ISRC), Evaluation of Child Care Subsidy Strategies, and the Quality Intervention for Early Care and Education Program (QUINCE)) have different aims and approaches, but all share a commitment to rigorous research.
