TED Talks: The Economic Case for Preschool

 

In this well-argued talk, Timothy Bartik makes the macro-economic case for preschool education — and explains why you should be happy to invest in it, even if you don’t have kids that age (or kids at all). The economic benefits of well-educated kids, it turns out, go well beyond the altruistic. (Filmed atTEDxMiamiUniversity.)

The author of “Investing in Kids,” Timothy Bartik studies state and local economies — and analyzes the benefits of preschool as an economic development program.
