Jones will discuss the Obama administration’s commitment to early learning and provide an update on the Race To the Top-Early Learning Challenge.
The Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge will award funding to states that engage in breakthrough work to dramatically improve the quality of early learning and development programs serving high-need children. Research shows that high-quality early learning education reduces crime, strengthens national security, and builds a base of educated children prepared to succeed in a competitive global economy.
