AJ Crabill has strong opinions about early childhood education and he's quick to dispel any notion that it should start around preschool.
He is a champion of ECE, and his education experience includes chairing the Kansas City School Board and serving as the deputy commissioner of the Texas Education Agency where he helped spearhead statewide incentives for school districts to expand their pre-K offerings outcomes statewide. He's now a conservator with the DeSoto Independent School District and he coaches school systems nationwide to get clear about what they want for their students.
In this podcast, he talks about why ECE needs to begin WAY earlier than many believe and about the the importance of supporting families and students to help children accelerate when they start kindergarten.
