Report explains benefits of Early Education
Currently, Idaho does not invest in early learning, except in the case of special needs children. Building Strong Foundations outlines how increased access to early education in Idaho would increase student achievement;strengthen communities, and save  public dollars. Our report has been expanded and updated with 2015 data.
