Cradle to Kindergarten: A New Plan to Combat Inequality
The Georgetown Center on Poverty and Inequality, Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP), and the University of Michigan’s Poverty Solutions and School of Education, hosted a conversation about early-in-life disparities in the United States and ideas for addressing them. Authors Ajay Chaudry, Taryn Morrissey, and Christina Weiland discussed their new book, Cradle to Kindergarten: A New Plan to Combat Inequality, which offers a comprehensive, evidence-based strategy that diagnoses the obstacles to early learning and development and charts a path to opportunity for all children. Keynote addresses were given by Sen. Margaret Hassan and Rep. Rosa DeLauro. The event also featured a panel of national and local experts focusing on the issues of family leave and early child care and education.
