This year DEY has been working hard to mobilize the early childhood community to speak out with well-reasoned arguments against inappropriate standards, assessments, and classroom practices. We created our on-line resources including our Early Childhood Activist Toolkit
, Mobilization Kit
and Action Mini Grants
. Our article The Common Core State Standards, Are They Failing Our Kids?
was featured as the cover story in the back-to-school edition of Boston Parents Magazine
. And we gathered early childhood activists in Dallas, TX for our second annual organizing meeting to share resources and build connections nationwide.As 2014 comes to a close, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to DEY. Your generosity will help us continue our work in 2015, including the January release of our advocacy report Reading Instruction in Kindergarten: Little to Gain and Much to Lose
. Please remember, you can now show your support to DEY through online donations. Check out our donation page
. Thank you so much!
