Early Childhood Education, High Public Return

Business leaders across the nation are pushing state and local governments to increase support for early childhood education. They say society sees a huge financial return on this important investment.

Joan Cartan-Hansen talks with economic researcher Rob Grunewald about whether Idaho should follow suit. Grunewald, an economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, co-authored a study showing how investing in early childhood education can have positive business returns.
