Laura Bornfreund was quoted in Education Dive on the quality of early education programs and why they're important for children and their siblings.
"But the expanding evidence on long-term outcomes doesn’t mean early-childhood leaders and policymakers shouldn’t focus on the quality of today’s programs, suggests Laura Bornfreund, director of early and elementary education policy at New America, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank."
“I think it's important to consider both short-term and long-term outcomes for children,” she wrote in an email. “We know that high-quality pre-K programs are preparing children for kindergarten.”
