Quality Staff Makes All the Difference
August 23, 2017
Children have neither past nor future; and that which seldom happens to us, they rejoice in the present.
-Jean de la Bruyére

In her Atlantic Monthly article, "What Boston's Preschools Get Right," Lillian Mongeau writes, "Providing high-quality public preschool is no small feat. Only a handful of city and state programs meet the quality standards established by the National Institute for Early Education Research, a think tank which publishes annual reports evaluating state preschool programs across the country. Boston's program exceeds those standards. In fact, the school district here is so enamored of its preschool program that city school officials hope to soon bring the principles of high-quality early education to later grades.

"The key elements of quality are simple, says Jason Sachs, the director of the district's early-childhood education department: A great curriculum and ongoing, effective staff support. 'Who the teacher is and what the teacher is teaching? Huge,' Sachs said."

As Mongeau explores the question of how Boston has been able to provide high-quality programs, she asserts that "the answers include well-educated, well-paid teachers."
