Voices from the Field

Ready At Five was thrilled to attend Secretary of Education Arne Duncan's Conversation hosted by Dr. Freeman Hrabowski at UMBC.  Secretary Duncan stressed the need for focusing on opportunities to continue strengthening education across the continuum, from early childhood through college. His clear message was the importance of and vision for a PreKindergarten to career pipeline that impacts policy, communities and states.  According to the Secretary, education should be about acceleration and enrichment not "catching-up".  Readiness for sucess is an issue.  We all need to focus on high quality education and higher achievement.
