MomEnough_logo_notagA Conversation about Early Childhood with Economist Dr. Art Rolnick

Rolnick,Art_hs“Too often people think of ‘education’ as something that begins when children enter kindergarten. Yet a wealth of research shows that a child’s success in school and life (in fact, the very architecture of a child’s brain) is shaped in powerful ways by experiences in the earliest months of life. Furthermore, economic research demonstrates that for every dollar invested in early childhood programs we reap a return on investment of about $16. Dr. Art Rolnick has been at the forefront of this research since his days as Vice President for Research at the Minneapolis Federal Reserve and continues to study and advocate for early childhood investment as Co-Director of the Human Capital Research Collaborative at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota. In this Mom Enough show, he joins Marti & Erin for a lively discussion of this important topic.” -MomEnough TUNE IN HERE
