UW-Madison alum Wilinski authors new book, 'When Pre-K Comes to School'

March 09, 2017
Alumna Bethany Wilinski is publishing a book based in her dissertation research while at UW-Madison. 

When Pre-K Comes to SchoolWilinski received a Ph.D. in 2014 from the School of Education's departments of Curriculum and Instruction, and Educational Policy Studies. Today, she is an assistant professor with Michigan State University's Department of Teacher Education.

The book is titled: "When Pre-K Comes to School: Policy, Partnerships, and the Early Childhood Education Workforce," and will be released March 10.

The book explores both the benefits and constraints teachers and institutions face when school districts and community ECE centers partner to provide public pre-K education. All teachers are required to follow the same policy mandates, but compensation and access to various resources differ wildly.
