Early Childhood Commission Focuses on Quality Programs, Teaching to U.S. High Schools
Commission Begins Work This Week
Frankfort, KY — November 13, 2014 — The Southern Regional Education Board Early Childhood Commission convenes leaders this week from 16 states to study effective ways to improve preschoolers’ access to high-quality early learning. The Commission’s charge is to recommend policies that will give more young children a solid start when they enter school.
The Southern Regional Education Board today launched the Commission on College Affordability in the South to focus state policies on the goal of affordability for students.
SREB’s Commission on College Affordability in the South convened in New Orleans in December 2014 for its second meeting to focus state policies on increasing the students’ ability to pay for and complete college. Members learned what the research tells us about affordability’s effects on enrollment and completion and heard about promising practices in two states, Oklahoma and Tennessee.
