Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Discussion 1


Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.


Access   to High-Quality Programs

Children’s access to high quality programs in the United States is influenced by the state in which they live.  For this discussion, you will visit the Children’s Defense Fund website and access the Children in the States Factsheet for your state and another state of your choosing.  Review the fact sheet for your state and another state of your choosing.  Find data for the following:

  • Number of children served by       Head Start
  • Average annual cost of child       care for a 4-year-old in a center
  • Percent of 3-year-olds       enrolled in state Pre-K, Head Start, or special education programs
  • Percent of 4-year-olds       enrolled in state Pre-K, Head Start, or special education programs
  • Number of poor children (and       percent poor)

You will then create a graphic representation (e.g. chart, table, or graph) that clearly shows the differences in these statistics between your state and the other state you chose.  You are encouraged to use “chart,” “table,” or “smart art” features in Word to create your graphic.  You may also use Excel.  An example is included here:

 Factsheet Graphic

 After uploading your graphic into the discussion, address the following:

  • Analyze your findings and       determine if the children in your state are receiving appropriate       childcare services relative to the children in the other state. Justify       your analysis by providing a comparison between the funding, percentage       of students served, and percentage of identified poor children based on       the data for the two states.
  • Provide two to three specific       recommendations for families to access quality childcare in your       community. Also, locate two organizations that can aid families in       identifying quality care. 

 Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your peers by identifying similarities and differences between the data you described and the data described by your classmates.  Include recommendations for additional data analysis within your responses that could contribute to the class discussion.
