I often write about research studies from various fields and how they can be applied to the classroom. I write individual posts about ones that I think are especially significant, and will continue to do so. However, so many studies are published that it’s hard to keep up. So I’ve started writing a “round-up” of some of them each week or every other week as a regular feature.
By the way, you might also be interested in MY BEST POSTS ON NEW RESEARCH STUDIES IN 2021 – PART TWO.
You can see all my “Best” lists related to education research here.
Here are some new useful studies (and related resources):
Students who were part of Tennessee pre-K program continue to trail peers who weren’t, study shows is from Chalkbeat, and is the best analysis you’ll find of that widely-discussed study.
Behind the findings of the Tennessee pre-K study that found negative effects for graduates is from The Hechinger Report, and also provides a good analysis of the same research.
Here’s another one: A top researcher says it’s time to rethink our entire approach to preschool from NPR.
Finally, What does the Tennessee pre-K study really tell us about public preschool programs? from Brookings is also worth reading.
Early childhood education yields big benefits — just not the ones you think is an older article from Vox is related and worth reading.
"The appropriate conclusion from the Tennessee study is not that we shouldn't invest in the education of young children. Instead … we need to invest smarter, which means investing in quality." Prof Emerita Deborah Stipek & Mimi Haas #preK #earlyed https://t.co/QzMk6f3IsE
