Schooling is dominated in population reach by governments -eg primary school typically age 6 through 10 (how much longer government offers schooling can depend on how3 rich a nation is)- anyway this means that learning up to 6 was not understood through the 20th century with the same attention as age 6 up
in 2001 fazle abed started a university and believed one of the ways to value how the world's poorest billion women had made headway in the economic miracle of ending extreme rural poverty would be to invite graduates and education world to attend to early learning (from 1985 abed had built the world's largest non-gov schooling system at primary school level- his simplest ideas given need to do this at lowest cost that achieved results was to maximise love students and teachers felt for each other - in line with one room montessori village schools that had been scaled in parts of 1930s India with Gandhi's support)
so abed university started designing (and inviting global educators to co-create) village schools for 3 to 5 year olds in bangladesh starting with the same cultural idea of the happiest most loving culture...
up to 50 nations (or borders eg locations where refugee learning urgently needs love) had started sharing knowhow on early learning playschools by abed's death in december 2019 and in nov 2021 the usa passed legislation committing 400 billion dollars to learning of 3 t 5 year olds --twitter; facebook
how can next door and other us community engaged networkers compile a library of this exciting advance in 21st C development
Asian approaches have since Abed's death been unified around education foundation (prize, luminaries) of hong kong technologist and billionaire charles yidan
frineds in us are inviting next door communities to clarify how early learning comes together- some starters include bezos family foundation - within about 50 early learning focal points bezos has connected - some starters 20 page report on early learning by Deans for Impact
