Speakers: Christina Collosi

Fragmentation in the field has led to incoherent and often conflicting policy and budget priorities for early learning in California. For the first time, a policy committee was convened in 2016 comprised of key stakeholders in the field to find common ground and sequence quality early learning legislative priorities for 2017-2024. In this session you will hear findings from a national policy scan and the resulting policy sequencing for California.
