Early childhood matters most because it is the most impact you can possibly have on a child’s academic future and success in life. Utah is leading the way in supporting children during these critical years. This is especially true in the programs being offered in rural settings such as the UPSTART program and the Early Intervention Software Program (EISP). These programs ensuring that every child, especially those in rural settings, have every advantage to be school ready, literate and able to engage in the opportunities our schools offer to them. Every $1 spent on a child in early education yields a $17 annual “return on investment.” It is time for a national Call to Action to ensure that ALL students can excel in our education system.
