Early Years and Early Grades

How many of you were "C" students?
Anyone out there not graduate from high school?
Each nation's future prosperity depends on developing the next generation of scientists, teachers, engineers and productive citizens. Public and private investments in high-quality early childhood education have demonstrated a greater rate of return than almost any other public investment, yet vulnerable children from low-income, at-risk families who benefit the most from comprehensive education and care have limited access to quality programs. How can cities, states and nations begin to change this picture? How can philanthropic foundations, government agencies and the private sector partner to broaden access and improve the quality of educational programs and services available to those most in need? This panel will examine the innovative initiatives that are making a real difference in the lives of children.
