Teaching parents how to teach their toddlers: Seattle-area program yields lasting benefits

The Parent-Child Home Program in the Seattle area is helping close the achievement gap in poor and at-risk families by giving 2 and 3 year-olds a jump start in early education. By pairing parents with a trained educator, the program is helping children in low-income and immigrant families perform on par with their white and wealthier peers years later, improving graduation rates and potentially even salary and healthy lifestyles in the long term.
