Film Showing and Discussion: The Raising of America, Episode 3, Are We Crazy About our Kids?

June 20 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am

No cost to attend.
A growing number of economists are worried about our investments in early childhood. Not because we’re spending too much but because we’re spending too little where it matters most.
Nobel laureate economist James Heckman, former Federal Reserve vice president Arthur Rolnick and others walk viewers through the Perry Preschool, Abecedarian and other classic studies which showed how investing in high-quality early care and education yields huge individual and social benefits, and even pays for itself many times over.
How crazy are we about our kids? Are we willing to invest for success today – or resigned to paying more for failure tomorrow? Come join the conversation!
