Pre-k and other early education

Today, it's not the question of whether early education is beneficial that's making headlines. It's the nuts and bolts of early ed that are in the news, as New York City Mayor de Blasio and New York Governor Cuomo work out their differences regarding the source of funding for NYC's universal pre-kindergarten plan. No matter what the buzz is, you'll always find resources on early education at Child Trends -- from indicators about school enrollment to research on early childhood development.

Super Bowl

Women who use Title X health clinics

Title X is a federal grant program meant to meet the family planning needs of low-income people, from contraception to related preventive health care, such as STI testing and breast and cervical cancer screening. 60 percent of women who use Title X clinics, in fact, identify those as their regular source of medical care. In this brief, we describe how these women's health needs differ from those of other women, to enable providers to offer better-targeted services.
