The Heckman Equation - invest in early human development!
"The highest rate of return in early childhood development comes from investing as early as possible, from birth through age five, in disadvantaged families.
Starting at age three or four is too little too late, as it fails to recognize that skills beget skills in a complimentary and dynamic way. Efforts should focus on the first years for the greatest efficiency and effectiveness. The best investment is in quality early childhood development from birth to five for
disadvantaged children and their families."
