Teacher-Student Interactions Are The Best Measure of Early Education Quality

What is quality in early education classrooms, and how can we make sure that more children—especially those from low-income families—experience it? Our own and others’ research shows that classroom interactions between teachers and their students provide the strongest indicators of quality.

CASTL faculty Robert Pianta, Jason Downer, and Bridget Hamre collaborate on a blog post that highlights the importance of high-quality teacher-child interactions in the classroom and defines how we can best measure and support the types of classroom interactions that promote learning and development.
