Happening Today: White House Summit on Early Education
Today, December 10, President Barack Obama will host the White House Summit on Early Education, where elected officials, advocates, business leaders and philanthropists will meet to discuss a plan for expanding access to high-quality early learning programs. Montessori will be represented! The Trust for Learning, which funds and convenes the Montessori Leaders Collaborative (AMS is a member) will be there to spread the Montessori word.
At the Summit, President Obama and the First Five Years Fund will launch a new campaign challenging policymakers and public and private partners to build a better nation through high-quality early childhood education. More information about the campaign, as well as a website and videos, will be available tomorrow.
Here are some ways we can take part in the event:
• Watch the Summit live between 8:15 a.m. and 3 p.m. EST.
• Tune in at 12:00 p.m. EST for a big announcement from the President
Today is a big day for early childhood education!
