        What Parents Talk about When They Talk about Learning | Ready To Learn-Funded Parent Survey

        The early years in a child's life are the most transformative and essential to laying the groundwork for later success in life. All parents want what's best for their children and are working hard to help them grow and learn. 

        What Parents Talk About When They Talk About Learning: A National Survey About Young Children and Science describes results from a national telephone survey of 1,442 parents with at least one three-to-six-year-old child living at home. The survey asked parents about their attitudes, beliefs, and practices related to early learning, science learning, and digital media use. 

        A goal of the survey is to bring attention to the experiences families living with limited financial resources have in helping their young children learn. The survey study oversampled parents living in economically disadvantaged communities; 909 of 1,442 families (63%) had an annual household income of $50,000 or less. 

        This study was commissioned by the U.S. Department of Education’s Ready To Learn Initiative, led by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and PBS. It was conducted by EDC and SRI International, long-standing evaluation partners for the Ready To Learn Initiative.
