Many children begin school academically unprepared. The children of immigrants, especially those who do not speak English at home, are especially disadvantaged. How can preschool help? PPIC policy fellow Jill Cannon discusses early education and skill development, with a particular focus on the experiences of this vulnerable group.

This project was supported with funding from The David and Lucile Packard Foundation and The Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund. Advance registration is requested. Lunch will be provided and there is no charge to attend.
