We will explore system building in a time of great focus on program funding.  How are state and local leaders advancing systems thinking and systems work in this new and changing context?  What does it mean to advance a pre-k agenda and a systems agenda?  Likewise, what does it mean to advance an infant-toddler agenda and a systems agenda?  Where do concepts of equity fit in the continuum of supporting services and systems?
