Raising healthy children is critical to national economic growth
Dr. Jin Lee, Qidza Foundation
Nobel Laureate, James Heckman, calculated for every dollar invested in early childhood, there’s 17 times a return. We all benefit because our kids are able to learn at their optimal level, graduate from higher education, secure better jobs, have better health, not be reliant on the welfare system, and contribute more to the society. This is key to closing America’s achievement and income gap. This talk will explore why We must invest in early childhood today, with everyone of us learning the signs of delays, advocating for our kids early, and together, we can change the existing system for the better.
