U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius will deliver opening remarks at the Early Childhood 2010: Innovation for the Next Generation meeting on Tuesday at the Hilton Washington in Washington, D.C. The Secretaries will announce the formation of a new Early Learning Interagency Policy Board to improve the quality of early learning programs and outcomes for young children; increase the coordination of research, technical assistance and data systems; and advance the effectiveness of the early learning workforce among the major federally funded early learning programs across the two departments.
The Early Childhood 2010 meeting brings together state and local partners from a range of early childhood programs across ED and HHS, key stakeholders and federal staff. The goal is to improve collaboration and partnerships at the federal, state and community levels in support of integrated early childhood systems. Through plenary sessions, workshops, state team meetings and networking opportunities, participants will discuss innovative, evidence-based practices and discuss their vision for creating a high-quality coordinated early learning and development system.
