    Early-childhood education is emerging as a contentious policy issue in states and Washington and as an opportunity for education investors and non-profits. The Obama Administration has launched a number of initiatives advancing early childhood education ranging from reforming Head Start to the release of the Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge Grant winners.
