The Foundation for Child Development commissions case studies that offer a first-hand account of ground-breaking policy development and practice. They document the processes that translate ideas into concrete policies and practices, with attention to the political forces and critical relationships of trust that are required for genuine implementation.
The Foundation’s case study series seeks to document efforts of a larger movement in states, school districts, schools, and in education and advocacy organizations across the United States to create a well-aligned and high-quality primary education for all our nation’s children. We believe that site-specific learning should be broadly shared to deepen the implementation of PreK-3rd approaches in the United States.
