The New York City Early Childhood Research Network held its first Research Symposium on Friday, December 6, 2019 to highlight insights from eight studies that investigate the implementation of New York City’s PreK for All program.
New research from the Borough of Manhattan Community College points to concrete steps to recruit and retain more men in early childhood education and highlights the ways in which men can improve early learning.
A new Research Network study conducted by researchers from Bank Street Center on Culture, Race & Equity and National Center for Children in Poverty at Columbia University explores how early childhood instructional leaders work to improve teaching through feedback and guidance during classroom visits and other types of instructional support.
As New York City’s Universal Pre-K for All (PKA) is consolidated into a single effort managed by the
Department of Education, a new study by Columbia University’s National Center for Children and
Families at Teachers College points to ways in which this ambitious effort can deliver more uniform
quality across the many programs serving young children, while still allowing providers to address the
specific needs of children.
The Research Network is pleased to announce its early career scholars award recipients: Meghan McCormick, research associate at MDRC, Samantha Melvin, doctoral student at Teachers College, Columbia University and Natalia Rojas, doctoral student at NYU-Steinhardt.
