There were real wins for young children in 2020 even though budgets were slashed and legislatures adjourned early. In this year when so many eyes were on the federal pandemic response and presidential election, it became clearer than ever that state government is where so many of the crucial early childhood decisions are made.
The Alliance for Early Success 50-State Progress Report on Early Childhood Policy catalogs those key decisions in 2020.
It also provides crucial state-by-state context, offering a snapshot of the early childhood policy landscape that our whole network—grantees, their partners, national organizations, researchers, our investors—have worked to shape.
