Aimed at educators and policymakers, PreKindergarten - 3rd Grade: A New Beginning for American Education, highlights PreK-3rd in action at the South Shore School, a PreK-8 public school in Seattle.  

"Fighting Fade-Out Through PreK-3rd Reform" makes the case for PreK-3rd reforms beginning with high-quality early education programs and building on the benefits of those programs through the elementary school years and beyond.  The video features Jerry Weast, Superintendent of Montgomery County School District (Maryland), who has successfully used PreK-3rd reform as a way to close achievement gaps and raise the academic performance of all students in the district.

Christina Satkowski of the New America Foundation's Early Education Initiative interviewed Dr. Weast for an in-depth discussion in a second 30-minute video.
