Cradle to Kindergarten: A New Plan to Combat Inequality

The period between birth and kindergarten is a critical time for child development; yet, the US government invests less in children under the age of five than most other developed nations. Join NYU scholars Hirokazu Yoshikawa and Ajay Chaudry for a discussion of their new book, Cradle to Kindergarten: A New Plan to Combat Inequality. The book offers an evidence-based strategy diagnosing the obstacles to accessible early education and charts a path towards opportunity for all children.

Richard Buery, NYC Deputy Mayor for Strategic Policy Initiatives, will offer a keynote address. C. Cybele Raver, NYU’s Senior Vice Provost for Academic Analytics and Graduate Affairs, and Politico NY Reporter Eliza Shapiro will join the authors for a panel discussion.

[Co-sponsored with NYU Steinhardt, Wagner, and IHDSC]
