    Description & More Details

    New Product

    Challenging policymakers, educators, reformers, and citizens to replace piecemeal reforms with fundamental redesign, First Things First! calls for a different way of organizing the American primary school. Ruby Takanishi outlines a new framework for integrating early education with primary education (PreK-5), including both short- and long-term strategies, that starts with 3- and 4-year-olds. Featuring portraits of primary schools that have successfully integrated PreK, the book includes resources on dual-language learners, dual-generation family engagement, effective philanthropy, rethinking advocacy, and more.

    First Things First! reframes the basic structure of traditional primary education, challenging us to get the early years of a 21st-century public education system off to a new and stronger start.

    Softbound, 208 pgs.
