Presentation Slides

A key place to potentially disrupt the intergenerational effects of poverty is the early education and care field. In this field both children’s skills and adults’ economic mobility can be addressed. A panel of practitioners will discuss new pilots aimed at poverty disruption within the early education and care setting. Initial results from the pilots will be shared.
