The Great Lakes West Comprehensive Center has released the April 2012 edition of our e-newsletter, Your ACCESS to the Region. As always, the newsletter updates recent progress on state work in Illinois and Wisconsin. This newsletter focuses on the importance of early learning and the need to support states in making early childhood education a priority. In the future, the regional comprehensive centers likely will be providing more support in helping states plan their early learning initiatives. The feature article discusses the importance of collaboration between the education systems (early childhood and K–12) to help children transition smoothly between the two systems and learn what they need to know to succeed.
