Promoting Educational Opportunity through Early Education: Learning from the French Experience

Thursday, December 12, 2002 - December 13, 2002

The conference is organized by the French-American Foundation, and is sponsored by the Foundation for Child Development and The McCormick Tribune Foundation. The subject of this conference is French priority education policy as it applies to the French preschool system of “ecoles maternelles”.

Conference panels will examine French “best practices” and explore other aspects of the French educational policy that are of particular relevance for efforts in the United States to promote and develop early education, especially for low-income, minority, and immigrant children.
