Anyone looking for upstream solutions to the biggest problems facing America should look to Nobel Prize-winning University of Chicago economics professor James Heckman's work to understand the great gains to be had by investing in the early and equal development of human potential.
The basic skills needed for success are formed before children enter school. Investing early helps to prevent the achievement gap, and investing in our most disadvantaged children provides the greatest returns. Professor Heckman advocates for investments in prevention—not remediation.
