High quality early care and education can promote long-term socioeconomic success. Unfortunately many children do not have access to the same resources.

Authors Ajay Chaudry, PhD, and Taryn Morrissey, PhD, will discuss their new book, "Cradle to Kindergarten: A New Plan to Combat Inequality," which offers an evidence-based strategy diagnosing the obstacles to accessible early education and charts a path towards opportunity for all children. A panel discussion will follow.
