Early Childhood Education: Babies Are Everybody's Business
Cox, Kitt
School Business Affairs, v75 n7 p16-17 Jul-Aug 2009
A movement is building that favors creating a national network of high-quality early education and care systems that begin at birth. It makes sense. Promoting positive early learning experiences, healthy caregivers, and a connection between families and community resources can reverse rising rates of expulsion, high school dropouts, and the need for many special-education services--and can save money. Those touting the investments in such systems point to positive outcomes for workforce development, worker productivity, graduation, and crime prevention. There is growing national political will to improve early education in America. Newly elected president Barack Obama is championing early education investment as a key to economic recovery, growth, and sustainability.
