Executive Summary Research is increasingly demonstrating that the policy of investing in early child-hood development, particularly high-quality prekindergarten, provides a wide array of significant benefits to children, families, and society as a whole.
Empirical research shows that all children, regardless of whether they are from poor, middle- or upper-income families, benefit from prekindergarten programs. In addition, higher quality prekindergarten programs provide greater benefits than lower quality prekindergarten programs. Children who participate in high-quality prekindergarten programs require less special education and are less likely to repeat a grade or need child welfare services.
Once these children enter the labor force, their incomes are higher, along with the taxes they will pay back to society. Both as juveniles and as adults, these children are less likely to engage in criminal activity thereby reducing criminality overall in society.
High-quality prekindergarten benefits government budgets by saving government spending on K education, child welfare, and the criminal justice system, and by increasing tax revenues.
Thus, investment in high-quality prekindergarten has significant implications for future government budgets, both at the national and the state and local levels, for the economy, and for crime.
This study breaks down these benefits at the national level and state-by-state. This study analyzes the costs and the fiscal, earnings, and reduced crime benefits of public investment in 1. The governmental costs and benefits of both publicly funded prekindergarten programs, measured as year-by-year expenditures, budget savings and revenue impacts, are estimated from program implementation in through the year In addition to the long-term budgetary consequences to governments that follow from such investment, the earnings and crime implications for individuals and society are calculated for the same years.This page contains literature circle sheets, book reviews, book report forms, and a reading survey.
