The Costly Consequences of Not Being Socially and Behaviorally Ready by Kindergarten

Please join us for a presentation of new research from the Baltimore Education Research Consortium on child readiness for kindergarten. Deborah Gross, Johns Hopkins University, and Amie Bettencourt, The Fund for Educational Excellence, present findings from their study on the costly consequences for kindergarteners who struggle with skills such as following directions, complying with rules, managing emotions, solving problems, organizing and completing tasks, and getting along with others. Learn about what Colorado is doing to mitigate the negative effects associated with poor social emotional development and the policy options and innovative solutions they are using to promote healthy development.
