Early Education: There Should Be No Question

I have trouble understanding the debate, even why there is a debate, over early learning in Hawai‘i. To those of us who see how a child’s future is so clearly determined by his or her early years, the case for early learning programs is solid.

Perhaps it is time for some harsh facts.

Who is more likely to end up needing the social service system—the child who had strong early learning opportunities, or the one that didn’t? Who is more likely to go to prison? To collect welfare benefits?

Have feedback? Suggestions?
