Book Title: Squandering America's Future - Why ECE Policy Matters for Equality, Our Economy, and Our Children
Publisher: Teachers College Press
Author: Susan Ochshorn
Diane Ravitch called Susan Ochshorn ''a tireless advocate for children,'' and her writing ''brilliant.'' In Squandering America's Future
, Ochshorn offers a pioneering guide to the big issues in contemporary early childhood policy. Written in a lively, personal style, the book drives home the importance of the earliest years for developing human capital-the nation's future. Her ''policy tales'' highlight the abject failure of the United States to support parents and early educators, the nation's real wealth producers, and will inspire a new generation of leadership. With her 360-degree view on this urgent issue, Ochshorn boldly and clearly shows how early care and education is an issue of social justice and helping America compete on the world stage.
