    Ever ask a child what they did in school? Often the reply is "Nothing" or "I don't remember." Or, maybe, "Stuff." You just can't rely on young students to explain what they learned, how they learned it or if lessons are appropriate. So as scholars and policymakers, we have set out to answer the question...

    Hi Vincent!
    Good to see you here. :) Thanks for sharing this important work. There are several posts on the forum talking about reaching out to bridge the gap between pre-K programs and public schools. P-3 advocates around the country are doing this in important ways. Your work in NJ is leading the way!

    I appreciate your spreading the word. We can't forget that our young children progress through a number of disconnected systems before reaching the upper primary grades. Smoothing those transitions and working together will make the experiences of young children much more powerful and connected.

    I encourage anyone interested in this work to connect with the National P-3 Center out of the University of Washington, where you will find resources and information on where P-3 work is happening across the country.

    Best,
    Melissa
