Research shows that a high-quality early education instills a strong foundation of cognitive and social skills in children, making them more likely to graduate high school, attend college, and achieve greater lifetime earnings. Over the next year, CED’s “Business Champions for the Advancement of Early Childhood Education” will be featured throughout our website, in podcasts, and during events that drive this important message and key strategies forward. CED will share best practices, the latest research, and highlight innovative approaches.
In addition, CED will collaborate with state and local business leaders to increase the quality of, and access to, early childhood education through public and private initiatives; leverage partnerships with national, state, and local policymakers and like-minded organizations; and, create a digital forum to highlight innovative practices and expand the national conversation.
