Brookings: Memo: Building a cohesive, high-quality early childhood system

In a recent article by Dapha Bassock (University of Virginia), Katherine Magnuson (University of Wisconsin), and Christina Weiland (University of Michigan), the authors write:

 

"Too many children in the United States do not have access to affordable, high-quality early childhood care and education (ECE) during their first five years of life. Very good ECE programs can yield large and long-lasting benefits  both to individuals and to society. Over the past two decades, strong public support  for ECE, increased state investments in preschools, and federal efforts to improve access to high-quality programs have contributed to meaningful improvements in access to affordable early childhood programs, especially for four-year-olds."
