Infants and Toddlers in State and Federal Budgets: Summary Report from Urban Institute Roundtable

From the abstract:
This report summarizes the roundtable “Infants and Toddlers in State and Federal Budgets: Yesterday’s Choices, Today’s Decisions, Tomorrow’s Options” conducted by the Urban Institute, with support from the A.L. Mailman Family Foundation, on March 30, 2009. The roundtable’s focus grew out of the widely perceived mismatch between sharply limited public investments on infants and toddlers and an accumulated body of research demonstrating the significance of the earliest years of life. We describe the group’s diverse perspectives and wide-ranging discussion of strategies to address this mismatch.
