The Invest in Kids Working Group was created to examine and document the economic benefits of investments in young children and explore policies to finance expansion of such services. Working group members are leading experts in economics, business, advocacy and public policy. The group is chaired by Robert Dugger (bio), a CED Trustee and Chairman of the Partnership for America’s Economic Success Advisory Board.
The Partnership for America’s Economic Success is a collaborative initiative of 11 funders created to document the economic impacts of children growing to be successful, productive adults, and is administered by the Pew Charitable Trusts.
The Committee for Economic Development has information and links to a wealth of research from some of the nation’s top researchers on topics in the economics of investing in early childhood and various position papers.
