The proposals to expand and improve early education in Seattle raise many questions about what effective preschool looks like. And what does “high quality” mean, anyway?

The Education Lab team hosted a Google+ hangout on all things early education this on Sept. 23. The discussion was facilitated by reporter John Higgins.

Our panelists included:

  • John Bancroft, a longtime Head Start director in Washington state who is advising the city on its preschool proposal
  • Laura Chandler, a 25-year teacher at Small Faces Child Development Center in Crown Hill
  • Lisa Williams, a veteran teacher at Kendall-Whittier Elementary in Tulsa, Okla.
