The Early Grades  

Is it true that everything you needed to know about life you learned in kindergarten? Maybe not, but research indicates that a high-quality education in the first few years of school can increase children's success in reading, writing, and math; close achievement gaps; and set the foundation for healthy and engaged citizenship. This issue will delve into best practices and new ideas for supporting early elementary students (K–3) in developing the academic and social-emotional skills they'll need to thrive in later grades—and in their lives.
