Kickoff Events, May 5th

Please join us on May 5th for the launch of the Palmetto Basics, a community wide early learning campaign aimed at equipping parents and caregivers of children ages 0-3 with a simple but effective set of five research-based tools they can use to prepare their kids for high achievement in school. 

Helping us launch the Palmetto Basics will be Ron Ferguson, an MIT-trained economist who has taught at Harvard University since 1983. His research, writing,and consulting over four decades have focused on issues of education and economic development. He is the faculty director of the Achievement Gap Initiative (AGI) at Harvard University and a fellow at the Malcolm Wiener Center for Social Policy.
We are excited to offer two different times to learn about Palmetto Basics.
