Early Learning and The Louisiana Story

May 29, 2018

Early learning is critical to the United States economy and Louisiana has addressed the challenges of education in a unique way. Host Mike Petro sits down with Melanie Bronfin, Executive Director of the Louisiana Policy Institute for Children; Louise Stoney, a national early learning and financing expert; and Sonjia Joseph, Executive Director at Clara's Little Lamb Preschool Academy in New Orleans, to find out what other states can do to make a difference in early childhood education.

To learn more about the Louisiana School Readiness Tax Credit, read CED’s policy brief, “Pathways to High-Quality Child Care: The Early Education Workforce Investment Credit,” as well as the Louisiana Policy Institute for Children’s report, “Giving Credit Where It’s Due.” Additionally, check out our Child Care in State Economies page to learn about the economic impact of the child care industry across the country.
