New America’s Early & Elementary Education Policy team is part of the Education Policy Program, which works to advance policies and elevate dialogue to support high-quality learning environments for all children birth through third grade.
State allies can call on New America to:
Additional alliance-funded support of state advocacy includes:
Producing resources (articles, podcasts, videos) on policies and strategies that support students pre-k through 3rd grade during and after the pandemic, including mental health supports, in-person learning strategies, use of technology for distance learning, and organize webinars and other events to disseminate promising ideas.
Producing resources (articles, podcasts, videos) on state policies and innovations in early educator preparation that support educators, especially those from communities of color or low-income backgrounds, to attain higher credentials and degrees. Policy ideas are based on research funded by the Alliance.
