Early Childhood Education: A Cause Worth Fighting For

15 May 2015 by Emily Doyle

Do you ever stop to think whether you are making a difference? We live in a world with so many causes worth fighting for—access to medical treatment, cancer research, affordable housing, civil rights, clean drinking water ... the list goes on. But I can think of few causes that are as critical and worth fighting for than our investment in young children. Because giving children every opportunity to be great drives the future success of just about every worthy initiative out there.

Nelson Mandela told us: “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” At Teachstone, we’re committed to arming every child with this weapon—because early education isn’t just an “education issue”—it’s a social, political, and economic issue, too. And we believe that CLASS is one way to do it, because arming children with the power of education starts with strong teachers, and CLASS gives us a way to objectively assess and improve teaching. CLASS is about more than meeting compliance standards or checking a box. CLASS was developed with one goal in mind: to achieve better outcomes for kids—and by doing so we achieve better outcomes for everyone.

At Teachstone, we’re delivering on the promise of CLASS the best way we know how: by continuing to understand early childhood education challenges and develop products that give teachers and children a fighting chance at greatness. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to attend and present at the 2015 QRIS National Meeting; this year’s theme is “Higher Ground—Taking Quality to Scale.” We hope to see you there!
