NEW RESEARCH: Birth-to-age-five early childhood education produces high returns.

New research from Nobel Laureate economist James J. Heckman and colleagues finds that comprehensive, birth-to-age-5 early childhood programs can produce higher economic returns than those previously established for preschool programs serving 3- to 4-year-olds.

Professor James Heckman and colleagues from the University of Chicago and the University of Southern California’s Schaeffer Center released The Lifecycle Benefits of an Influential Early Childhood Program. The groundbreaking study shows that
high quality birth-to-five programs for disadvantaged children can deliver a 13% per child, per year return on investment through better outcomes in education, health, social behaviors and employment, reducing taxpayer costs down the line and preparing the country’s workforce for a competitive future.
