Example text

He concluded that the most promising of these efforts is high-quality early education: “The best evidence supports the policy prescription: invest in the very young and improve basic learning and socialization skills” (2000, p. 8). Another influential voice came from the Research and Policy Committee of the Committee for Economic Development, which is composed of some 250 business and education leaders. The group released a report entitled, Preschool for All: Investing in a Productive and Just Society.

Some economic groups advocate preschool for targeted groups. For example, the Economic Policy Institute (Lynch, 2004) issued a report, Exceptional Returns: Economic, Fiscal, and Social Benefits of Investment in Early Childhood Development, focusing on the economic benefits of highquality early childhood development programs for low-income children. Specifically, the report concludes that high-quality programs generate a $3 return in the long term for every $1 invested. This return is considerably lower than that calculated by most economists and child development researchers.

In this respect, school readiness reflects the fit between the school’s characteristics and the personal resources that the child brings to school. It is noteworthy that Goals 2000 did not imply that children would start school knowing any of the content matter typically associated with kindergarten. Rather, the aspiration was that children would enter school ready to participate actively in the learning environment of the kindergarten classroom. The difference is quite significant: the goal was for children to have the skills needed to succeed as learners in kindergarten, not to have already mastered a portion of the academic skills that kindergarten teachers feel is their job to teach.
