In most of Europe there is universal, good-quality preschool for three- and four-year-olds. In America, recent data show that fewer than half of all three- and four-year olds are enrolled in some form of preschool. Head Start, the main federal program, provides preschool funding for only about two-fifths of poor children in this group.
Early education is so important. Why can't the US be more like Europe and other parts in the world and provide it when gains are most prevalent?? Even more research suggests that early educations between ages 1-4 have a significant positive impact on outcomes. Do it for the kids!
