Investing in Early Childhood: A Road Map to Economic Success for Louisiana

The Louisiana Budget Project formally endorses the plan “Investing in Early Childhood: A Road Map to Success for Louisiana.” This Road Map outlines the steps Louisiana can take to ensure that the children of this state become successful adults, by using public investments where they yield the highest returns. These efforts include: expanding the Nurse-Family Partnership program, decreasing preterm births, creating a strong system of early education, expanding the Early Childhood Supports and Services program, and by improving the quality of parenting education.
