James Heckman: A Quality Pre-K Experience Can Impact Generations

Nobel Prize-winning economist James Heckman joins CPRE Director Jonathan Supovitz to discuss the latest research into the Perry Preschool Project, a landmark 1960’s study that examined the impacts of high quality preschool on at-risk children.

Heckman and Supovitz discuss the study and some important takeaways for early childhood policy, practice, and future research.
