PPL 363: Early Childhood Policy in the U.S.

Public Policy Leadership

This course will explore how public policy affects the youngest Americans: those age 0-5. It will address what infants, toddlers, and preschoolers need to thrive, why their needs sometimes go unmet and with what consequences, and possible solutions. In doing so it will cover health, welfare, education, child welfare, and other family policies, with a focus on the interaction among policies and between policy and practice.
