Indicators of the Equity of School Readiness


"The National Association of State Boards of Education suggests that school readiness must be considered at the child, family, school, and community levels (NASBE, 1991). It is important for children to be ready for school, but families, schools, and communities must also be ready to meet the developmental needs of young children (Graue, 2006). Although families, schools, and communities are essential contributors to school readiness, nearly all discussion of school readiness focus exclusively on assessments of child skills, behaviors and other characteristics and what contributes to children's individual readiness. The focus on the readiness of individual children likely stems from the comparatively stronger prediction from these measures to later schooling outcomes, compared to that of other factors."
