DVAEYC's own Sharon Easterling on Larry Kane, Voice of Reason

Release Date: June 25, 2013


DVAEYC's own Executive Director, Sharon Easterling was a guest panelist on Larry Kane’s Voice of Reason.

Throughout the nation, parents and educators are pushing hard for more support for early childhood education. Sharon says that our nation is behind others in providing the critical education needs for children in their preschool years.

“The brain is developing more in the first five years than at any other time. So we have this very interesting problem in the US. By the way we’re the only industrialized country that doesn’t support high quality education beginning in the younger years. (Is it mandated in other countries?) It is publicly supported in every other industrialized country”.
