The bad news is that the quality of America’s workforce is not what it should be, not what it could be, and not showing considerable improvement. The good news, according to Economist James J. Heckman, is that the potential for America’s dynamic skilled workforce is in our very midst – children ages 0 to 5 years old! As the Nobel Prize Laureate in Economics, Heckman recognizes the “life cycle” of growing a skilled workforce by investing in quality early childhood education programs like Orange Children & Parents Together. In addition to providing preparedness for school, life, and self, Heckman successfully outlines how investing in quality education for children ages 0 to 5 will increase America’s ability to be globally competitive. Read James J. Heckman’s entire letter to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction here. CEOs representing everyone from the Atlanta Falcons to Xerox to Macy’s to Proctor & Gamble echo Heckman’s rally cry in their compelling joint letter to the United States Congress.
