BU Wheelocks's new webinar series, Conversation with the Dean, are casual, discussion-style webinars designed to dig in on some of the most pressing topics in education with leading experts in the field.

Topic: What to make of Massachusetts’ major new investments in early childhood education?

$1.5 billion. That's the amount of money Massachusetts has committed to spending to support increased access and improvements to early childhood education and care in the state (a $300 million increase from last year). So, where is that money going--and what changes can we expect to come from it?
