"Dr. Bagnato’s SPECS Team’s focused, high quality evaluation research has helped us in many important respects. First, it documents the impact and outcomes of our high-profile public-private Pre K Counts partnership. Second, kudos to Dr. Bagnato for finding a way to communicate our positive results in a digestible manner that can reach lay stakeholders including civic and elected leaders, and business leaders and help them to understand the impact in terms and language that works for them.”
