Scott Moore has been an advocate of early childhood education for California’s youngest children for years. He served as the executive director of Gov. Schwarzenegger’s Early Learning Advisory Council from 2010 to 2011. As the senior policy adviser at Preschool California, an advocacy organization, Moore has pushed for the creation of transitional kindergarten and the consolidation of the state’s various early education initiatives to create its current state preschool program. As part of an occasional Question and Answer series with leaders in California education, Moore sat down with EdSource Today’s Lillian Mongeau last month to talk about early education policy.
