Strengthening Benefit-Cost Methodology for the Evaluation of Early Childhood Interventions, March 4-5, 2009 Washington, DC
Federal and state agencies have demonstrated significant interest in expanding investments in early childhood education programs in order to improve the healthy development of children and youth, strengthen academic achievement, expand labor productivity in future generations, and increase U.S. global competitiveness. However, opinion differs as to how best to assess the effect of these programs. Hosted by the Board on Children, Youth and Families of the National Research Council and the Institute of Medicine, this workshop is designed to identify major challenges in benefit-cost analysis of early childhood interventions and opportunities to strengthen benefit-cost methodology.
