Summary:

Many children enter kindergarten without the necessary social and emotional competence to make this transition. This monograph attempts to raise the level of awareness about this critical issue by examining the current research regarding the social and emotional risk and protective factors that predict early school outcomes and by analyzing federal policies that seek to improve these outcomes. The monograph explores the existing gaps between research and practice and provides recommendations for change. Included is an appendix identifying risk and protective factors and a list of four references.
