A Robert Lynch study released today shows that the benefits of investing in high quality early education in Wisconsin would be more than 9 times the cost of the program in 2050. Total benefits -budgetary, earning, and crime prevention – would exceed $13 billion, more than nine times the cost to the state for universal 3 and 4 year-old programs.
