The Great Disconnect in Early Childhood
What We Know vs What We Do

Over the years, most reforms in early childhood education have been well-intended, yet have not kept up with the needs of young children and educators in the classroom. Author Michael Gramling provides an historical overview of how educational policies came into effect and how they are driving educational practices. Gramling argues that ineffective practices are the result of unexamined public policies and asserts that educators need to challenge this kind thinking in order to make a difference in children's lives Powerful, thought provoking stories will inspire you to examine the problems and challenge you to envision a preschool classroom that works for all children.
