Why Math Might Be The Secret To School Success - Mind/Shift

Why Math Might Be The Secret To School Success - Mind/Shift | Technology in Math Classroom | Scoop.it
Little children are big news this week, as the White House holds a summit on early childhood education December 10. The President wants every four year old to go to preschool, but the new Congress is unlikely to foot that bill.

Since last year, more than 30 states have expanded access to preschool. But there’s still a lack of evidence about exactly what kinds of interventions are most effective in those crucial early years.
