Early Childhood Learning Programs WORK!

Sanford Professor Ken Dodge, Director of the Duke Center for Child and Family Policy (CCFP), made an appearance on the North Carolina’s School Public Forum’s “Education Matters” program to stress the importance of supporting early childhood education.

CCFP recently partnered with Brookings to create and release an 106 page report on the long-lasting positive effects of Pre-K programs on lifelong success. “The Current State of Scientific Knowledge on Pre-Kindergarten Effects” report was generated from an interdisciplinary panel consensus statement of which Dodge and Sanford’s Helen Ladd were members.

This was Ken’s second time on the Sunday morning series which focuses on the state of public education in North Carolina.
