Education


Since 1942, CED has been at the forefront of business engagement in public policy. CED's leadership in advancing early care and education, spanning several decades, has been a defining chapter in its long tradition of promoting business statesmanship. By 1968 CED had recognized the need for high quality preschool education to be part of a larger effort to improve the American education system. Since then, CED has published at least eight reports that draw attention to early childhood investment as a critical component of education reform. Over 200 business leaders have publicly endorsed CED's research on the importance of pre-kindergarten and led outreach efforts to secure the support of their peers for preschool across the country. CED's model of engaging the business community has mobilized corporate leaders to support early learning programs. Our many Members have traveled the country and spoken to business and civic audiences about the importance of investing in children and families.
