EduDream - Featured Insight

Summary:

The Thornburg Foundation commissioned EduDream to partner with New Mexico’s Early Learning Advisory Council to conduct research and generate policy recommendations. Specifically, the research examined the allocation of federal and state early childhood funds and identified strategies to ensure state funds reach areas of high need without supplanting federal funding. To conduct this research, EduDream reviewed secondary data sources and documents, including state agency documents and data, and conducted interviews with state agency leaders, PreK providers, and Head Start providers across New Mexico.

Project Deliverables:

Project Impact:
