The Committee for Economic Development released two working papers this month that make the case for improving early-childhood education.
The first paper concludes that the existence of strong programs of early-childhood education can serve as an economic-development incentive for high-profile companies to locate in certain communities. The second paper outlines the social benefits that arise from having such strong programs.
The Washington-based CED is a nonprofit organization of more than 200 business leaders and university presidents.
