Check this out: Another Push for Early Childhood Education

It’s really hard to argue against offering more widely available Early Childhood Education. All research points to the benefit to the child and therefore a better chance that he or she will become a productive member of society.

Nicholas Kristof goes even further in this article to include kids even younger – under age 3. As usual, Kristof gives spot-on points for his stance:

  • Family planning to help girls and women prevent unwanted pregnancies
  • Outreach efforts to help women break the addiction of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco
  • Free at-home help for women who want to breastfeed
  • Encourage parents to speak to and read to children
  • Initiatives to reduce exposure to lead and other toxins
  • Mandatory screenings for hearing and visual impairment

If this seems like bologna to you, check out Kristof’s article below for some very compelling evidence. And get EDUKATED!
