    • Strengthen Entire Birth-to-Career Pipeline

    • “Large bodies of research have shown how poor health and nutrition inhibit child development and learning and, conversely, how high-quality early childhood and preschool education programs can enhance them.”

      • Dr. Helen Ladd & Edward Fiske, NY Times Op-Ed

  • “The notion of synergies lies behind such initiatives as the Harlem Children’s Zone, which seeks to intervene in children’s lives from birth through college. The promise of such comprehensive programs is that they can achieve higher returns than each separate program can do alone.”

    - Dr. Timothy Bartik, author of Investing in Kids
