Do early childhood education programs reduce rates of child abuse and neglect? Research from the Center for the Study of Social Policy concludes they can.
Joan Cartan-Hansen talks with Judy Langford, a Senior Fellow with the Center who heads the "Strengthening Families" movement. Langford contends that small but significant changes in early childhood education programs can have a profound impact on preventing child abuse and neglect. She explains how a small investment toward these changes can enable programs to effectively and quickly help families in crisis and protect children.
