New issue of Behavioral Science and Policy
The third issue of Behavioral Science & Policy (BSP) is now available online (PDF).
The new issue includes a Spotlight Forum on pre-K education programs guest edited by The Brookings Institute’s Ron Haskins featuring leading experts’ evidence-based assessments and recommendations. The articles examine the effectiveness of existing American early childhood interventions, including Head Start, state pre-K programs, and home visiting programs.
The issue also includes a timely article, given the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act, on how to promote accountability in K-12 education beyond relying on high stakes testing, as well as important reviews of effective interventions to promote healthier habits and evidence on how to make the truth stick (and not misinformation) from a cognitive perspective.
