LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Rae Ette Newman, assistant professor of education, discusses the significance of pre-kindergarten programs in the school system and complexities with expansion of state programs Thursday, Mar. 13.
Newman’s colloquium on “The Struggle for Prekindergarten Expansion in the United States” begins at 4 p.m. in Ackerman Hall, Room 210 at EOU. A reception with question and answer session will follow.
According to Newman, quality preschool and universal pre-kindergarten has seen an immense push by the federal government and advocacy groups in the last two decades. Enrollment in state pre-kindergarten programs continues to grow, servicing more four-year-olds than federally funded programs (Head Start). However, only 28 percent of four-year-olds are being provided this vital education opportunity (National Institute for Early Education Research, 2013).
A list of related resources provided by Pierce Library is available for more in-depth information on this topic. Visit http://library.eou.edu/colloquium. To be added to the colloquium mailing list call 541-962-3555.
