The Intersection of Early Childhood Education and Workforce Development

Early childhood education is a priority for President Obama and, with the passing of the historic stimulus package, billions of dollars will be flowing to states in the form of funding for Head Start, a comprehensive school readiness program addressing the emotional, social, health, nutritional, and educational needs of low-income pre-schoolers. Compelling research on the psychological, developmental, and physical benefits of early childhood education programs supports the Administration's focus on expanding access.
