A high-quality early education packs a greater ROI than the typical return on the stock market. Yet today, it remains out of reach for millions of children, especially those in underserved communities. And for those who do have access, many fail to reap the full benefits due to deficient quality. Boosting access and quality requires leadership from beyond the policy community; it also requires a concerted effort from the business community.
This webcast will lay out the benefits of investing in early education, along with what steps our nation’s business statesmen and stateswomen can take to advance it – for the economic good of kids, companies, and the country.
Who should attend: Those with an interest in the economy, investment, workforce development, leadership, and education.
