Latest Research on Madison School District 4K Program to be Shared Thursday
April 24, 2018
A free and public presentation of the latest findings on early learning in the Madison School District will be offered Thursday by a new research collaboration studying the district’s 4-year-old kindergarten program.
The Madison Education Partnership, or MEP, is a joint research practice formed about 18 months ago between the district and the Wisconsin Center for Education Research, part of UW-Madison’s School of Education.
Since then, the collaboration has produced several studies about different aspects of the 4K program, with five university researchers Thursday to present results publicly for the first time related to topics including educational equity, family engagement, interpersonal skill development and supporting homeless families.
Event seating is limited; register at www.mep-research-symposium.eventbrite.com. It will be held from 4-7:30 p.m. at UW-Madison’s Gordon Center, 770 W. Dayton St.
