Nebraska Policymakers Reach Consensus on Early Childhood Legislation, Based on Recent Scientific Findings. Perspectives
National Scientific Council on the Developing Child
A case study of Nebraska early childhood legislation, passed unanimously in 2005, shows the role of science in effective policymaking. By combining citizen advocacy, skillful work by legislators, and testimony by local experts as well as national scientists, Nebraska succeeded in producing bipartisan consensus on the importance of early childhood education and development. Legislators determined that the goals of supporting children and achieving high economic and social returns for public funds can both be served by investing in early childhood programs.
