Social Context of Education

Preparing children for school and future life success ranks high on the nation’s policy agenda. School readiness initiatives and greater attention to children’s transitions in early childhood and beyond are emerging as integral parts of education reform and larger social reform movements in support of children and families. The Center’s work in this area spans the continuum from transitions in the earliest years of life through middle school, with particular attention given to the intersection of school and family changes and the impact on children’s emotional and social well-being.
