WHY EARLY EDUCATION?
Children who participate in high-quality programs tend to have:
Higher scores on math and reading achievement tests
Higher high school graduation rates and higher levels of schooling attained
Improved nutrition and health
In the long run, these children are also more likely to:
Have higher employment and earnings as adults
Experience lower rates of alcohol and other drug use
Be less likely to engage in criminal acts or be incarcerated
And it is not just kids who win! Parents of participants:
Complete more years of schooling
Are more likely to be employed
Have higher earnings
