Roundtable #2: Moving Research to Action for Early Education in Oregon (session #251)
Staff from the Children’s Institute will share information and resources from their work with policymakers, government agencies and funders to support cost-effective public and private investments in early childhood programs in the state. The Institute has been instrumental in expanding Oregon’s unique Head Start prekindergarten program and establishing first-time state funding for Early Head Start. In addition, the Institute has produced a number of reports that help guide state efforts to develop programs and policies to support young children and their families.
