In the Sunday Philadelphia Inquirer in an article on the importance of providing
preschool education, Professor James Heckman of the University of Chicago and a
Nobel laureate in economics is paraphrased as saying: from a purely human
capital point of view, investiment in early childhood is much more
cost-effective than investment in job training of GEDs.
Does anyone have a reference to an article by Heckman on this subject? Was the
return on investment made on parents included?
