NCFR Releases Policy Brief — “Parent Education and Family Life Education: A Critical Link in Early Childhood Education Policy”
NCFR's latest policy brief, “Parent Education and Family Life Education: A Critical Link in Early Childhood Education Policy” by Glen Palm, Ph.D., CFLE, and Betty Cooke, Ph.D., CFLE, is now available.
Research on parenting has demonstrated that parent–child relationships and the family environment are the foundation of children’s future well-being and learning. This policy brief reviews early childhood education policy, along with research on the role and effectiveness of parent education and Family Life Education. Recommendations emphasize the importance of two-generation early childhood programs focused on both young children and their parents.
A two-page executive summary and a six-page policy brief with more in-depth information are available for you to download and share with others.
The purpose of NCFR’s research briefs and policy briefs is to educate policymakers and others who have an investment in families. Brief topics must be timely and include a family perspective. Briefs are based on high-quality research; are educational, nonpartisan, and objective; and are written by experts in the field. Learn more...
