Reviews

"Bouffard's interviews with educators and administrators give insight into the landscape of the pre-K debate and support her call for universal pre-K." --The New York Times "Suzanne Bouffard's new book, The Most Important Year, may be just what parents of preschoolers have been waiting for; a guide to what a quality pre-K program should look like." --NPR "Something amazing is happening in America: We are building a new public education system, nearly from scratch -- to serve 3 and 4 year olds. The grand "pre-K" experiment has consequences for our economy, our democracy, and, of course, the little children who will one day lead us all. Suzanne Bouffard is the tour guide we need to understand what is happening and what we can all do to make the experiment a success. " --Elizabeth Green, author of Building a Better Teacher "Anyone who cares about children, their future, and the future of our country should read THE MOST IMPORTANT YEAR, Suzanne Bouffard's compelling investigation into the state of preschool education in America. Bouffard sheds light on how and why educational inequity exists, delves into the research on how young children learn best, and offers important insights on how to change early childhood education for the better. Essential reading for any parent, teacher, or policymaker who believes that all American children deserve a quality pre-K education that will set them up for a lifetime of learning." --Christine Gross-Loh, author of Parenting Without Borders
