The Hinckley Institute Radio Hour: Early Childhood Education


ChildhoodPanelThe Hinckley Institute Radio Hour (Air date: December 3, 2014) – Recently a group of advocates for early childhood education reform gathered for a panel discussion at the University of Utah.  Until this year, Utah was one of 10 states that provided no public funding for early childhood education.  But HB96 was passed to provide partial public support for preschool programming for about 600 at-risk children in the state.  Proponents of early childhood education say this was a small victory, but quality preschool is still out of reach for 60,000 at-risk 3- and 4-year-olds in Utah.

Cheryl Wright is a Professor in the Department of Family and Consumer Studies; Rebecca Chavez-Houck is a Democratic State Representative; Karen Crompton is the President and CEO of Voices for Utah Children; and Susan Johnston is Professor of Special Education at the University of Utah. They spoke on October 24, 2014.
