Request to my readers for questions

In 127 posts to this blog since December of 2010, I have covered most of the main points of my book Investing in Kids.  I need to shift this blog to more coverage of ongoing events related to early childhood programs and local economic development. This might include recent research papers, policy debates at the state and local level, etc.

Here is where you come in. In discussing early childhood programs with legislators and other political leaders, with business leaders, or with members of the public in general, what questions are you running into? What skepticism or concerns do these political actors express about early childhood programs? Or, in your own work, what research findings are you curious about? What policy debates in your state or local level would you like this blog to respond to or comment on?  The possible policy debates include not only early childhood programs, but economic development programs, the workings of state and local economies, and state budget and tax policy.

Please email any questions or possible blog topics to me at bartik@upjohn.org . Or, you can post your questions or suggested topics in the comments on this blog post.
