Shattering Myths in Early Care and Education
Findings from three studies released today challenge conventional wisdom about early care and education (ECE) participation among low-income Hispanics, and suggest that ECE policies and programs seem to be reaching the hardest-to-reach Latinos. The studies also indicate that long-observed gaps in ECE participation between low-income Hispanic children and their peers may be closing. Still, the work suggests that a one-size-fits-all approach to ECE is unlikely to fully meet ECE needs of all low-income Hispanics.
