The author makes a fiscal case for government funded preschool
programs. The book's introduction says,"...this study illustrates the potential benefit to the solvency of the U.S. Social Security system from ECD investment." That's right, the solution to the government's Social Security woes is to send kids to preschool. Government funded preschool programs will be an exercise in social engineering to make sure we have human resources -- a guaranteed work force -- that will assure future generations get their Social Security checks! If ever there was evidence that universal preschooling "is all about the money" -- this is it, folks!
