Watch: Are We Crazy About Our Kids? (32 minutes)
Science has demonstrated that a child’s experiences during the earliest years are vital to building the foundation for life-long success – in school and in life. Now economists are studying the costs and benefits of high quality early care and preschool. And they’re worried. Not because we’re spending too much, but because we’re spending too little where it matters most.
Are We Crazy About Our Kids? is one episode of the six-part documentary series The Raising of America: Early Childhood and the Future of Our Nation, slated for release this winter and for PBS broadcast next spring. Visit www.raisingofamerica.org for more on the series and how to get involved with the public engagement campaign to change the conversation early childhood in our nation.
