Author: University of Chicago Urban Education Institute & Ounce of Prevention Fund / December 10, 2012

Building a Birth-to-College Model: Professional Learning Communities, the newest in a planned series of case studies on building a Birth-to-College Model of Education released by the University of Chicago Urban Education Institute (UEI) and the Ounce of Prevention Fund outlines how to create Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) of teachers, administrators and family support staff spanning the early childhood to K-12 spectrum. The intent of the PLCs is to create environments where practitioners take the lead in collaboratively studying and piloting effective, developmentally informed practices that prepare children for college, beginning at birth.
