New Research Shows High-Quality ECE Strengthens Families and Can Break the Cycle of Poverty

A new analysis from Nobel laureate economist James J. Heckman and colleagues finds that targeted, high-quality early childhood investments have the power to lift multiple generations out of poverty.

This research demonstrates the impact of high-quality early childhood experiences, as participants and their children saw significant increases in education, health, full-time employment and reduced incidence of anti-social behavior or crime.
