What do preschools get you? Larry Schweinhart

"At age forty, we found $16 return for every $1 spent on preschool."

Larry Schweinhart and his team conducted a 30-year-long study to uncover the effects of a pre-school education on low-income kids. In this talk, he brings to light the remarkable impact of early childhood education from adolescence to adulthood, and breaks down the math to show how much money is saved in everything from prison costs to lost income for every dollar spent on pre-school. (Filmed at TEDxMiamiUniversity.)
