"States vary greatly in the quality and extent of the preschool programs they offer. Nationally, only 28 percent of 4-year-olds and 4 percent of 3-year-olds are enrolled in state-funded preschool, and 10 states do not have any sort of publicly funded preschool. There are also grave quality issues: 50 percent of Texas 4-year-olds are enrolled in preschool, but the state does not meet the benchmarks for class size or student-teacher ratio set by the National Institute for Early Education Research. While Florida enrolls more 4-year-olds in preschool than any other state, it meets only 3 of the 10 quality benchmarks. Similarly, 63 percent of all 3- and 4-year-olds in the United States were enrolled in some sort of early learning program in 2009, but the quality of these programs and the benefit that children received from them varied greatly, especially along socioeconomic lines. The United States trails behind most other developed countries in this area, ranking 21st in early education investment relative to country wealth, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development." http://buff.ly/1mABaUw
If we value opportunity, equality, and fairness, we must do more to provide children and working parents with access to high-quality, affordable child care.

Take a look at this article that discusses how data can provide innovation in education. The article also addresses some policy issues, such as how to safeguard the data, the ownership of collected data, and how to gain a better knowledge of integrating different tools for data management.

StriveTogether, a subsidiary of KnowledgeWorks, supports communities learning from local data to continuously improve.

"Last September, a room filled with more than 140 community leaders came together for a one-day summit to talk about the concept of “cradle to career” and how the movers and shakers of Brown County might work together to improve the chances for young people to secure a first-class education and set the table for success later in life." http://buff.ly/1hoBy6f
