Eye on Early Education reviews my new book, “From Preschool to Prosperity”

Alyssa Haywoode, of  “Eye on Early Education”, a blog of  the organization Strategies for Children, has a review and interview about my new book, From Preschool to Prosperity.

One accomplishment of  Ms. Haywoode in the interview was to push me a bit on some of the broader vision about early childhood education that I’m trying to outline in the book. As I said in the interview, “People [advocating for early childhood education] should see themselves as part of a historic movement”.  This expansion of access to high-quality early childhood education for all, if it is successful, will be seen in the future as one of the major historical advances in our educational system. These educational advances in turn will help our overall economy and society. Early childhood education does not solve all problems, but it can make a big dent in some of them.
