Recently, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) launched the Speaker’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Early Childhood Education, a policy-driven body tasked with identifying ways to create a more sustainable early learning system and update an outdated funding plan that has been unable to meet the demand for child care access in California. The commission will enable the Assembly to find ways to improve the state’s early learning system, and realize those improvements through policy and budget decisions.
Our very own Dr. Jacquelyn McCroskey, John Milner Professor of Child Welfare and Co-Director of the Children’s Data Network at the University of Southern California’s Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work, has been appointed to serve on the commission. She will collaborate alongside multiple Assemblymembers and eight other community members to develop solutions to improve results for California’s youngest learners and their families.
