U.S. interagency policy board focuses on early learning
| Aug 05, 2010
The U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services have formed an 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. Education Secretary Arne Duncan and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced the initiative at the Early Childhood 2010: Innovation for the Next Generation meeting in Washington, D.C. August 3. For more information, visit the Early Childhood 2010 website, where you can download a PDF of the meeting program.
