Why do students choose not to pursue college, or drop out of college, even when they are provided with significant college counseling, external encouragement, and assistance in accessing financial aid?


Summer is a great time to plan for and even execute professional development for early education.  The B-3 Continuity Project partnered with Pat Chamberlain and Julie Kallenbach to present a series of trainings on Developmentally Appropriate Practices.  Through further collaboration, we are now happy to offer a comprehensive professional development option.


Ashley Long, Ph.D., the director of the Illinois Birth-to-Third Grade Continuity Project at the Center for the Study of Education Policy, was able to sit down with leaders from the field of social work to discuss potential ways that local partnerships can address society’s grand challenges.
