The Wallace Foundation has created four issue briefs to help state system planners make decisions about spending American Rescue Plan funds. The briefs summarize the evidence on outcomes and implementation guidance and each brief includes a bibliography.
The Office of Inspector General's issue brief identifies a concern that if states set payment rates too low, families may not have access to child care providers.
This brief provides a crosswalk of three common community supports that enhance children's social and emotional health: (1) infant and early childhood mental health consultation, (2) pyramid model/practice-based coaching, and (3) mental health treatment. It provides information such as definitions, professional qualifications, and service examples.
This issue brief provides a summary of research that identifies three dimensions that lead to suspension and expulsion: (1) absence of a deep understanding of child development with staff; (2) implicit bias; and (3) children who need more and different support than can be provided in an educational or early learning setting alone.
