  Early Childhood Education: What Works and What Doesn't  
(VTC)

Greg J. Duncan, Ph.D.
Distinguished Professor, University of California, Irvine

An event in the Eric Shullman Distinguished Public Lecture Series and a lecture in the 2017 Brain School

Greg J. Duncan, Ph.D., will conclude Brain School 2017 with a talk on early childhood education. At the beginning of kindergarten, children from low-income households are already a year behind high-income children in their math and reading achievement. These gaps change little over the course of their subsequent schooling. We summarize the available evidence on the extent to which expenditures on early childhood education programs constitute worthy social investments in the human capital of children. We consider evidence on both the best known programs as well as the much larger body of program evaluations published over the past 40 years and emerging evidence from recent state and local efforts.
