ECE and Public Policy

By Margaret and Wallace McCain Family Foundation

In this series of conversations, we speak with the researchers, educators and economists who have contributed their unique and important perspectives to Early Years Study 4. Each conversation is interesting and compelling on its own but, when combined, the call to action is loud and clear: high quality, early childhood education for ALL.

Emis Akbari is a Professor at George Brown College in the School of Early Childhood, She is also an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Applied Psychology and Human Development at OISE at the University of Toronto.

Dr. Akbari brings her experience in examining determinants of children’s early social, emotional, and cognitive development, coupled with a sense of urgency to our conversation on ECE and Public Policy.
