Trust for Learning plays an important role in supporting ideal learning partners to advocate for programs and policies that support young children’s growth and development. Through strategic national partnerships, targeted state and local efforts, and collective advocacy of the Ideal Learning Roundtable, the Trust supports partners in advocating for effective federal and state policies that accelerate public access to ideal learning. Specific policy agendas are developed in tandem with partners, and include areas such as: teacher licensure, quality frameworks, student assessment, and funding models. Recent projects have supported policy efforts in Colorado, Connecticut, New York City, and Washington, DC. The Trust also maintains an active role in national policy conversations, speaking at forums and conferences and commenting on federal guidance and regulations. A sampling of the Trust’s policy work can be found here.
