GEEARS releases A Framework for School Readiness in Georgia

This month, our partners at the Georgia Early Education Alliance for Ready Students (GEEARS) released A Framework for School Readiness in Georgia.  The framework was developed with various stakeholders throughout the state, with the goal of adopting a shared comprehensive definition of school readiness for Georgia.  The framework represents input from parents, teachers, principals, researchers, program administrators, health care providers, family support specialists, community organizations, and senior leadership at Georgia Department of Education, Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning, and the Georgia Department of Public Health.  Urban Child Study Center directors, Dr. Gary Bingham and Dr. Nicole Patton Terry, served on the committee that produced the framework.
