We'll be viewing Episode 3: “Are We Crazy About Our Kids?” (32 min.) Investing in high-quality early care and education for children pays for itself in many ways and many times over. This episode brings to life the classic economic studies of Perry Preschool and other initiatives conducted by Nobel laureate James Heckman, former Federal Reserve economist Arthur Rolnick and others, which illustrate how we can either invest early for success or pay more for failure later. So, what is holding us back?

The film will be followed by presentation of data on Fox Valley children, discussion and information on the Campaign to End Child Poverty in Wisconsin.
