Title:The economic promise of investing in high-quality preschool: Using early education to improve economic growth and the fiscal sustainability of states and the nation
Organization:Committee for Economic Development
Short Description:This report argues that broadening access to preschool programs for all children is a cost-effective investment that pays dividends for years to come and will help ensure our states’ and our nation’s future economic productivity.
Annotation:This report builds on CED’s previous work in early education by providing the economic evidence that justifies increasing investments in preschool. It has become generally accepted that preschool programs play an important role in preparing children—both advantaged and disadvantaged—to enter kindergarten. There is also a consensus that children from disadvantaged backgrounds in particular should have access to publicly supported preschool programs that provide an opportunity for an “even start.” Broadening access to preschool programs for all children is a cost-effective investment that pays dividends for years to come and will help ensure our states’ and our nation’s future economic productivity.
