Our childcare programs are worse than the 1940s, government and private sector investing are not enough, and despite overwhelming evidence on how early childhood programs work and have a positive impact, we are distracted by the tweet of a politician, the political party feud, or the latest reality show craze. Why should we invest in early childhood programs? Is there any evidence of success?
In these divisive political times, there is at least one issue that all sides of the political spectrum can agree on — the importance of taking care of children in early childhood. Giving Compass has featured stories from the left, right, and center, and all demonstrate a shared passion for helping get our kids off to a good start.
This week, we will focus on stories related to early childhood — we feature some new, original stories and highlight classic articles that will help you learn more about how you can help with this most critical of issues.
