Birth to Grade 3 Approach

The Superintendents’ Early Childhood Plan is making progress in reducing income-and-race based achievement gaps among young children. This birth through Grade 3 initiative is the largest and most comprehensive in the nation.

 

Classroom interactions and instruction are improving over time.  

 

Children whose families received more home visits showed greater language gains.  

Language development improved for children in PreK through Grade 3 with greater gains for low-income and Hispanic children.  

Early educational achievement increased over time with greater gains for children who are black and children whose home language is Spanish.
