CSSE Annual Conference - Victoria, British Columbia

The Hon. Margaret Norrie McCain gives the Big Thinker Lecture at the Canadian Society of Studies in Education Conference in Victoria, British Columbia, June 2, 2013.  In her presentation Mrs. McCain makes a compelling case for why policy makers should focus attention and resources on young children and their families. She argues that preschool education for all 2- to 5-year-olds is within our grasp, particularly if it is built on the asset we already have in public education.
