Early Childhood Educators and Leaders — Welcome to the 2019 HighScope International Conference!

Thank you for partnering with us to build brighter futures.


Welcome to the 47th annual HighScope International Conference! Each year, when planning the HighScope International Conference, we strive to bring you fresh ideas and perspectives that will positively affect your career as well as the children in your programs. This year, we have been inspired by influential women who are leading by example and taking action to advocate their causes. Our keynote speakers — Nikole Hannah-Jones, Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, and Dr. Ellen Frede — individually and collectively have a wealth of impressive accomplishments. Their stories are sure to invigorate your dedication to ensuring that every child has a bright future. We also continue to be amazed and impressed by the work that early educators are doing in their own programs, which is why we’ve added a new feature to our conference — ED Talks. This session will explore hot topics in early childhood through short, thought-provoking presentations by leaders in the field. We believe in the power of learning from the experiences of our peers and look forward to having innovative discussions about early education and shining a spotlight on the work you’re doing to revolutionize learning for our youngest learners. As HighScope approaches its 50th anniversary, it was important to us that this year’s conference theme capture the pioneering vision of our late founder, David Weikart — the belief that early education has a positive impact on children and the communities where they live. Our research, along with numerous other studies, has proven this to be true. Ensuring that every child receives an equitable, high-quality early education is the key to brighter futures and to advancing our communities. And that begins with the extraordinary work that you do with young children every day. You possess the power and ability to change the trajectory of a child’s life. Thank you for being here. Thank you for making your professional development a priority. And thank you for your tireless commitment to helping children succeed today and throughout their lives. It’s because of you that, together, we’re building bold and bright futures.

Cheryl Polk, President, HighScope Educational Research Foundation

Welcome to Detroit: It’s GO time. On behalf of the Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau, I am pleased to welcome you to our city for the HighScope 2019 International Conference. Detroit is alive with an incredible energy and vibe you can’t find anywhere else in the world and I encourage you to experience all that The D has to offer. While in Detroit, you may notice the city has undergone a major transformation. Downtown is home to new hotels, a brand new arena and entertainment district, a completely revitalized riverfront, new restaurants, parks, casinos, unique retail, theater, world-class museums and championship sports teams. The surrounding suburbs also offer a variety of exciting entertainment options as well. During your visit, I encourage you to take time to see the sights and meet some of our city’s interesting people. Taste The D’s delicious offerings, from meals prepared by award-winning chefs to the classic Coney dog. Explore the masterpieces that grace the walls of the Detroit Institute of Arts and sing and dance at the Motown Museum. Stroll along the Detroit RiverWalk and enjoy views of the Detroit and Windsor, Canada skylines. The Detroit People Mover and new Q Line are convenient and easy ways to get around downtown and connect visitors to hotels, the convention center, restaurants, retailers, museums, entertainment and sporting venues. Thank you for choosing The D for your conference. Our city has so much to offer your attendees. Everywhere you go, you'll feel the optimism, openness and liveliness that defines Detroit today. It’s time to experience Detroit for yourself. Time to see it. Taste it. Hear it. Feel it. And believe it. This is Detroit. It’s go time. Sincerely,

Larry Alexander President & CEO Detroit Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau

Opening Keynote

Wednesday, 9:00am – 10:00am

Issues of Equity in Education Presenter Nikole Room

Hannah-Jones

Renaissance Ballroom, Level 4

Nikole Hannah-Jones's brilliant talks explore how schools play an important role in their communities, how schools are affected by their surrounding neighborhoods, and how seeing race from the lens of education tells a whole new story of inequality in America. Rochelle Riley, a columnist for the Detroit Free Press and author of The Burden: African Americans and the Enduring Impact of Slavery, will moderate a question and answer period following the keynote. Hannah-Jones covers racial injustice for The New York Times Magazine, where her deeply personal reports on the black experience in America offer a compelling case for greater equity. She was named a 2017 MacArthur Genius Grant Fellow for “reshaping national conversations around education reform” and for her reporting on racial resegregation in our schools. Hannah-Jones also co-founded the Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Reporting with the goal to increase the number of reporters and editors of color.

The story of Flint is a story of the dismissal of science and the power of science in speaking truth to power. In this talk, Dr. Mona HannaAttisha will share the Flint story, but most importantly how the Flint community has embraced the science of early childhood and resilience to promote the health and development of Flint kids and children everywhere.

Meet the Author Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha is the author of What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City, a powerful first-hand account of the Flint water crisis and a riveting narrative of personal advocacy. Dr. Hanna-Attisha directs the Michigan State University and Hurley Children’s Hospital Pediatric Public Health Initiative, an innovative program created to research the impact of the Flint water crisis and help all Flint children grow up healthy and strong. Attendees receive a complimentary copy of Dr. Hanna-Attisha’s book What the Eyes Don’t See. Join us after the luncheon to meet Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha and have your book autographed.
