October 26, 2021 The Detroit News

The Education Policy Initiative (EPI) recently launched a two-year study to research the impact of transitional kindergarten (TK) on children's readiness for other grades co-led by Christina Weiland and Brian Jacob. Weiland commented about the importance of the research in the Detroit News

"The variation in the program across the state is part of why we are so interested in researching it," Christina Weiland, associate professor of education and co-director of EPI, said. "We think the early childhood education field and the state can learn a lot by understanding how it varies, how it fits into the early childhood landscape and whether children learn more in certain types of TK models than others."
