Elizabeth Graue on Research MinutesA preview of the “Research Minutes” podcast explains: As states increasingly call for standards-based Pre-K programs, teachers and administrators often struggle to balance traditional child development practice with external standards and policies.

Graue is the lead author of a new, multi-state, comparative case study titled "What Guides Pre-K Programs?" that was published in the Teachers College Record in August.

In the podcast, Graue joins CPRE Director Jonathan Supovitz of the University of Pennsylvania to discuss her findings and their implications for Pre-K administrators, teachers and policymakers.
