Join us to discuss how states are including early learning in their education vision under the ESSA. Are supports for dual language learners, or opportunities for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers and their families as an equity strategy being considered? How can early childhood educators in the preschool and early elementary grades be included in plans for professional learning? Learn about potential opportunities and what states are including in early drafts of their plans and strategies for advocating for meaningful inclusion of early learning in ESSA plans.  Resources for this session will include the new paper from BUILD and New America, Unlocking ESSA's Potential to Support Early Learning.

This session is made possible through the generous support of Kaplan Early Learning.
