Early education closes achievement gap, brings societal benefits
Date:2/15/2013

for providing innovative insights into the factors that contribute to positive outcomes for at-risk children who receive intensive support in the early years of life. Ramey launched the project in 1972 as a carefully controlled scientific study of the potential benefits of early childhood education for children from low-income families who were at risk of developmental delays or academic failure.

Follow-up studies have consistently shown that the children who received early educational intervention did better academically, culminating in greater educational achievements as adults.

The benefits of early education are so scientifically defensible that policymakers should capitalize on President Obama's initiative, Ramey said. "The challenge is to find ways to provide that education so children and society can reap the benefits."
