America speaks: New poll shows investing in early childhood education is a national priority

Share
Description:
A new national poll conducted for the First Five Years Fund by the bipartisan team of Public Opinion Strategies and Hart Research Associates shows that early childhood education continues to be a national priority for Americans, regardless of party. 71% of voters--including 60% of Republicans--support greater investment in early childhood education if it increased the deficit in the short-term, but paid for itself in the long-term by improving children's education, health and economic situations so that less spending is needed in the future. Majorities of Democrats, Republicans and Independents want the federal government to help states provide more access to high-quality early childhood education for low- and middle-income families.
